Mayor Jay Gillian announced Friday that a beach replenishment project for the south end of Ocean City could begin as soon as next week.
The contractor took advantage of calm seas last week to lay a pipeline from a dredge in Corson’s Inlet to the beach between 58th Street and 59th Street. Work to rebuild beaches and dunes will begin at 59th Street.
About 1,000 feet (two blocks) of beach at a time will be closed to public access as the work moves progressively northward toward 45th Street.
The project is expected to be completed within 30 days, and when it is, Ocean City will have received 505,000 cubic yards of new sand across 1.5 miles of beach, the mayor said.
