Brick Beach I has reopened after a round of beach replenishment closed it intermittently over the course of the last two weeks.
Crews from Weeks Marine, the federal government’s contractor on the island-wide project, has completed the portion of beachfront that makes up Brick Beach I and has moved north. Crews are now replenishing a number of private community beaches in the South Mantoloking section of Brick.
The dune crossovers are not yet built at Brick Beach I, but the beach is open with “mobi-mats” on the sand being used to allow people access. A beach official who was on hand Monday said the entrances will be constructed over the course of the next few days are expected to be completed by the end of the week. Shorebeat will post another video and photos of the completed beach.
Weeks Marine will continue moving north this week, officials said. The entire project in Brick will be completed in late August, according to estimates from the Army Corps.
