SEA BRIGHT: A borough project that has been in the planning stages for many years is finally coming to fruiting.
Hazard mitigation funding is now in place to replace and raise 6 riverfront bulkheads in the borough and construct a storm water pump station.
"A contractor was selected and a contract is being drafted," Mayor Dina Long said a Sea Bright Town Hall meeting on March 31
Long said it is likely a 12-month construction project once it begins, but the start date has not yet been finalized.
The bulkheads will be replaced and raised at Beach Way, Beach Street, Center Street, River Street, South Street and Osbourne Place.
The project is expected to help reduce flooding in the area during extreme weather events.
Bulkheads have been a priority for the borough since Hurricane Sandy. The council passed an ordinance late last year. that places design standards on any new bulkheads.
