Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini, Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone, and Neptune Township Committeeman Randy Bishop offered the following statement Monday to update residents on the progress being made in the effort to dredge Shark River state navigation channels:
“This project is closer to reality than ever before. This is a result of years of work coordinating with the many agencies that have authority over this project. This project focuses on what we can do, dredge the state navigation channels of the river” Arnone explained, a former Neptune City Mayor. “A project like this has to have full cooperation from the federal, state, county, and municipal governments. It has been a long process, but one that is moving forward”.
There are two permits necessary to move forward with the project: one from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the second from the US Army Corps of Engineers. NJ DOT has submitted applications for both permits. The State hopes to bid this project in time for a late-summer project award. If a responsive bid is received, and the selected contractor chooses, dredging could potentially begin later this year. The contractor may be given the option to conduct the work over two dredging seasons if necessary.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Press Release, Shark River | Tags: Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini, Belmar, Freeholder Tom Arnone, Monmouth County News, Neptune, Neptune City, Neptune Committeeman Randy Bishop, NJ DEP, NJ Department of Environmental Protection, NJ Dept of Transportation, NJ DOT, Press Release, Senator Jennifer Beck, Shark River, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Wall | 2 Comments »
