Stone Harbor Beach Fill- Complete

As of this morning: the sand pumping is complete and the tractors are leveling the last section of new beach (79th to 81st Streets).   Once the area is groomed and the equipment is moved, beach access will be fully restored on those blocks.

The heavy metal brackets that connect the lengths of black pipe have been removed.  Those pipes (currently lining the entire stretch of  Stone Harbor beach) will be hauled away soon.

While the project caused some inconvenience to residents and visitors, the Borough of Stone Harbor had no option on the timing.  After Irene and Sandy, the beaches/dunes in both Avalon and Stone Harbor were vulnerable.  Thankfully, this major restoration project had been approved and funded.
