Default North end of Brigantine closed starting today?

I understand they are closing the north end of Brigantine strating today to begin a beach replensihment. I have been told they will be trucking in 165 truck loads a day for 6 weeks (sounds like a lot of trucks!!!) Does anyone have any other info on this? What will this do to the beach with regards to the fall run?

from riptide:

september 12th they are going to start beach replenishment from the end of the seawall south to around 4th street North. The entrance to the North end will be closed Mon thru Saturday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. You will be able to go up there before and after those times and that will continue for 5-6 weeks. That's the bad news, the GOOD news is that The Riptide Striper Derby will be starting September 9th and will run until the end of December to give us access to the front beaches for the Fall striper run. Now there may be some stipulations but it should all work out fine. Just like any good plan, it can always be modified. We will keep you updated on what is happening in the surf and on the water at www.RiptideBaitandTackle.com , on Twitter @Riptidebait , or Face Book @ Andrew S Grossman. Thanks and Keep on Fishin Capt Andy

my opinion is that beach replenishment messes up the surf ... for quite a while.

Hey guys, riptide tourney starts on the 19th not the 9th. North end will still be open every night after 5 pm and all day Sundays. Sand will be piled up by the pavilion and trucked to the seawall . Should not effect beach on North end. Still waiting for the State to open up the old road all the way to the pilings.

Yep, that road was used to service the old coast guard station. That is(?) where the gate would be if the state decides to resume control of the north end. Big problem with it is the fact that it is a wildlife preserve,except for the foxes which they tried to exterminate.

They tried to exterminate the little buggers....... Aren't they wildlife too? Kind of hypocritical don't ya think. In any event when will we know if they are going to allow us (and the fox) to use the road?

Their excuse was that the foxes weren't native. They were brought in for rabbit control.

that stretch below the berm always has the deepest softest ruts on the entire beach

Rob, I think that road was history before you and I were even dreamed of.
