A massive beach fill project in Ocean City’s south end will be awarded soon by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The contract will likely go to Great Lakes Dredging and Dock Company which has conducted several beach fills in our area before, including in Avalon. Great Lakes offered a base bid of $58 million for the project that will result in 1. 6 million cubic yards of sand being placed on the south end beaches. The project will take more than a year to complete.
