Stone Harbor announced on Friday that a beach fill contract was awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company that will fill the Stone Harbor beachfront. Mobilization for the beach fill project has begun in Stone Harbor, and the beach fill project is expected to take about four weeks to complete. Following the Stone Harbor project, the hydraulic pumping of sand from Townsend’s Inlet onto the Avalon beaches will begin. Stone Harbor is scheduled to receive 210,000 cubic yards of beach fill along the Atlantic Coast shorefront. The Borough has selected to authorize an additional 180,000 cubic yards at its own expense.
