Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management Project
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District is managing the construction of a new extended ocean outfall pipe in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey as part of the Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project. Work involves the installation of a temporary steel sheet pile cofferdam and causeway so contractors can work in dry conditions. Cast in place concrete bents are poured on steel pipe piles to serve as a foundation for the 60" reinforced concrete and steel cylinder outfall pipe. Completion is currently estimated in late December. Ocean County, New Jersey owns and operates the existing outfall pipe and is funding this aspect of the project. Agate Construction Co., Inc. serves as the subcontractor to Weeks Marine Inc and is completing the construction of the outfall pipe.
