    The applicant, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, proposes to perform maintenance hydraulic dredging to a boat basin used by the University for its research vessels. The location for the proposed work is at the Rutgers University Marine Field Station, located at the end of Great Bay Boulevard, Lot 43, Block 326, in Little Egg Harbor Township, Ocean County, New Jersey. The applicant plans to hydraulically dredge approximately 10,910 cubic yards (CY) of sediment from the marina basin and its access channel to Shooting Thorofare that has made the channel and much of the marina basin unnavigable at low tide. To restore navigability and full use of the marina as soon as possible the applicant would like to dredge the access channel and the portion of the basin currently unoccupied by mooring piers in the Fall of 2023. This office issued Department of the Army (DA) permits for the dredging of the marina in 2018 under the subject public notice number used herein. Historically, a DA permit was issued in 2003 under NAP-2003-00426-39. The site was last dredged in 2018. More details are available in the "Public Notice" and "Plans" documents. Public comments are requested by Aug. 31, 2023.

    The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has requested Department of the Army authorization to conduct work in navigable waters of the United States and to discharge dredged and/or fill material into waters of the United States associated with improvements to the Parkway between Milepost 80.4 near the stream crossing of Jakes Branch and Milepost 84.1 near Interchange 83 at Route 9/166 crossing. The proposed project would include widening the Parkway, resulting in mainly three through lanes with adjacent collector-distributor roadways in each direction including safety and operational improvements at Interchanges 80, 81, and 82/82A. The proposed work is located in Beachwood Borough, South Toms River Borough, Berkeley Township, and Toms River Township, Ocean County, New Jersey. The stated purpose of this project is to improve accessibility, safety, and travel time along the Parkway from Milepost 80 to 83 by constructing the missing Parkway access points at Interchange 80; providing additional traffic capacity and eliminating unsafe weaving conditions along the mainline and at interchanges; and correcting substandard design elements, where feasible. Public comments are requested by July 30, 2023. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment.

    The Murderkill River entrance to the Delaware Bay is maintained by concrete filled geotextile bags serving as jetties along the northern bank and the southern bank, extending east into the Delaware Bay. The Murderkill River has a federally authorized navigation channel of 60 feet width at -7 feet MLW. The adjacent jetty structures are not included as part of the federal project. The concrete filled bags that make up the jetties are deteriorating and require replacement. The south jetty is overtopped by wave action and the tides, resulting in shoaling of the navigation channel. The 300 feet section of the north jetty is currently losing sediment through gaps in the concrete bags causing additional shoaling of the inlet channel. Both jetty reconstructions will reduce the loss of sand and sediment into the Murderkill River, reducing the need for dredging of the entrance channel. The concrete bags making up the south jetty will be excavated, removed and hauled to a recycler off-site in roughly 20 feet sections. Sand excavated to achieve proper elevations for the jetty will be placed along the beach south of the south jetty and graded to meet the existing profile. Geotextiles, foundation stone, bedding stone and armor stone will then be placed to form the new jetty. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment. Public comments are requested by July 26, 2023.
