The Army Corps of Engineers will begin dune replenishment in Ortley Beach and the northern beaches of Toms River on or before March 15, Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher said.“It’s imperative we get this project done to reduce our risk of coastal storm damage and strengthen our infrastructure,” Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher said. ”The township will keep maintaining temporary dunes until the Army Corps project is complete.”Ortley Beach was decimated by Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012.Part of the project’s holdup was the reluctance of some homeowners to sign over easements allowing access to part of their private beaches, the mayor said.But that has since changed.“To date, there are only three homeowners in Toms River who have not consented to the project,“ Kelaher said. “The township is in the process of using eminent domain to obtain the easements.“When the Army Corps project is completed, dunes will be 25 feet high and beaches will be 200 feet long from the Manasquan Inlet to the end of South Seaside Park. The Corps will maintain the beaches for the next 50 years, the mayor said.
