BEACH FILL UNDERWAY IN STONE HARBOR

The joint beach fill in Avalon and Stone Harbor started part two on Thursday. Mayor Suzanne Walters told Coastal Broadcasting that the dredge moved into place and began pumping sand on Thursday. The dredge is at about 110th St. and is working its way down to 80th St. Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company is doing the fill. A majority of the project is being paid by federal and state dollars. There is minimal impact to the local taxpayers for this beach fill. Walters said that she expects the work to be done in the next couple of weeks.
