Articles about dredging in Barnegat Inlet

Two good articles about the work being done in the inlet, including repairs to the jetty. The jetty repairs may make getting in and out a bit trickier.

Re: Articles about dredging in Barnegat Inlet

Neat articles on the inlet dredging.
Here's part of a news release my marina sent out, which may be of interest to some of you. We're on Double Creek but I think the thin water is further in since I didn't hear complaints around the marina last year about the bigger boats dragging. Maybe this will allow some bigger boats to come in.

RELEASE: March 13, 2014


Christie Administration announces
multi-year State Channel Dredging Program

Projects will improve safety and revitalize
local economies following Superstorm Sandy
(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a multi-year, multi-million dollar State Channel Dredging Program that will begin to return New Jersey's waterways affected by Superstorm Sandy to a state of good repair.

“Our state channels are vital waterways that are used by recreational boaters and commercial fisherman,” NJDOT Commissioner James S. Simpson said. “Providing safe navigation channels will have a positive economic impact on small businesses such as marinas, bait and tackle shops, and charter companies, as well as New Jersey's seafood industry.”

The first project that will go out for bid on Thursday, March 13, is for the dredging of the Waackaack and Thorns Creeks in Keansburg, Monmouth County. This project will remove approximately 36,000 cubic yards of Sandy-related sediment. Work on an adjacent Confined Disposal Facility (CDF) is expected to begin in May. Dredging is anticipated to start in June.

Typically the state would not dredge in the summer, but the new program features an aggressive schedule to maximize efforts during periods of favorable dredging conditions to alleviate hazards to boaters and commercial vessels. Efforts will be made to ensure work does not unnecessarily impede navigation.

Over the next few months, NJDOT expects to open bids for the dredging of St. Georges Thorofare (Atlantic County), Cape May Harbor and Middle Thorofare (Cape May County), and Double Creek, Double Creek – Mainland, and Barnegat Light Stake Channels in Barnegat Bay (Ocean County). These projects will remove both Sandy-related sediment and pre-storm sediment to alleviate hazards to navigation and return these channels to a state of good repair. In Cape May, the Middle Thorofare project will ensure New Jersey's commercial fishing industry is able to safely access berths that support the New Jersey seafood industry.
