AVALON BEACH PROJECT FINISHED ON TIME

Some beaches in New Jersey are still feeling the hit taken by Hurricane Sandy, but not in Avalon.  Avalon officials announced that a major 302,000 cubic yard beach fill project was completed on Tuesday.  The Borough has a new beach from 8th Street south to 25th Street.  The dredge is pulling out of Avalon for a project in New York; it returns in April to do a larger beach fill project in Stone Harbor.
