MARGATE, N. J. – A New Jersey shore town that lost a battle with the state over the construction of beach and dunes will now be in the dunes, built on the beaches during the busy summer months.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/2n6pfBC ) the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin with the formation of the dunes on Margate’s beaches in June and continue through August.
Dune opponents think that the state is back to Margate for their resistance. But Army Corps officials say that they regularly run of dune-the work during the height of the summer.
About four blocks from the beach will be closed at a time during the construction. A 24-hour work schedule is expected.
Mayor Mike Becker said the continuing concerns about the access to the beach, draining and accumulating trash have yet to be fully addressed by the Army Corps.
