Currently valid permit authorizes dredging along the back-bay shoreline area of the City of Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey. No additional changes are being proposed to the authorized dredging or to the approved off-site location for final disposal of dredged material. However, the applicant has proposed to construct a temporary access road from Roosevelt Boulevard to CDF # 83. The proposed roadway would be approximately 1,550 feet long, with a cart-way (top width for travel) of 20 feet, and a total disturbance width of 40 feet, consisting of the 20' cart-way, 10' wide side slopes (i.e. 30' width at bottom of embankment), and an additional 10 feet to account for settling/disturbance. The proposed impact area would include two (2) truck staging/loading areas (one along Roosevelt Boulevard and one along the CDF). The total area of proposed wetland impact is 1.27 acres. The City proposes to use the road to remove dredged material in order to create capacity; then perform dredging as authorized under the permit, followed by a second round of material removal before removing the road and restoring the wetlands to their original elevation and grade.
