Menendez Secures Funds for Beach Replenishment (Monmouth Beach)

Senator Menendez and Representative Frank J. Pallone Jr. were in front of The Shores Condominiums to hold a press conference announcing $7.5 million in federal funds secured for a badly needed beach replenishment initiative in Monmouth Beach. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the project should begin in November and be completed around March 2012, in time for for next summer's rush. The thinning beachfront will be expanded about 100 feet from where the current water line is.
