Expiration date: 9/12/2018
The applicant, Long Beach Township, proposes to remove an existing terminal groin (made of wood and stone), and construct a new, larger terminal groin using steel sheeting, core stone and armor stone (including re-use of existing stone). The applicant has stated that the existing deteriorating terminal groin is insufficient to slow long-shore transport of nourished beach sand to the south. The applicant is cost-sharing the project with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Division of Coastal Engineering. The project site is located on the ocean-front beach at the southern terminus of Long Beach Boulevard, just south of Cleveland Avenue in the Holgate section of Long Beach Township, Ocean County, New Jersey. More details are available in the Public Notice and Plans attachments. Public comments are due by Sept. 12, 2018.
