Avalon’s big spring beach fill project is likely to begin on or before Easter weekend. An updated report on the beach fill project was presented to Avalon Borough Council during the Wednesday, April 13th council meeting. Avalon is scheduled to receive a major beach fill project from the 16th Street beach south to 30th Street. A total of 270,000 cubic yards of sand will be placed on the beaches by the “Illinois”, a dredge owned and operated by Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company. Avalon has partnered with neighboring Stone Harbor in this project. After Avalon’s work is completed, the dredge and the equipment will move south to perform work on Stone Harbor’s beaches.
