The Township has just learned that the first hopper dredge is scheduled to arrive Sunday morning. Sand import will begin shortly thereafter. However, contrary to what the contractor originally proposed; the project will start working toward the south first, so that there will be more working room to transport equipment to and from the staging area near the Seaside border.
The closure of the beach will still be limited to 1,000 feet at a time, and sand ramps will be provided over the pipe where it crosses the open beach areas. The only change is the order in which the project will progress.
