The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract to repair the Superstorm Sandy-damaged north jetty of Barnegat Inlet, state officials announced Monday.

According to the state Department of Environmental Protection, the contract was awarded to Agate Construction Company of Clermont, Cape May County, for $7.6 million to repair approximately 740 feet of the jetty on the north side of the inlet that was battered by Sandy.

The project is expected to begin later this month and be completed by the fall, state officials said.

The storm caused the displacement of stone along the 740 feet being repaired.
The repair work will involve rebuilding the cross-section of the jetty using existing capstone, supplemented with additional capstone, corestone, slushed concrete and stone-filled mattresses.

"This project will bring much-needed stabilization of the jetty at Island Beach State Park, and should be the final piece of the post-storm restoration of our state park, which the Christie Administration has been fully committed to since Superstorm Sandy," DEP Commissioner Martin said in a statement. "This is part of the overall coastal repair and restoration effort along the entire New Jersey coast being done by the Army Corps of Engineers, in coordination with the DEP, that will result in a more resilient state shoreline."

The north jetty is a popular fishing location for local anglers, who often catch blackfish and striped bass from the rocks. The repair project will mean the jetty, and the beach just to its north, will be closed for the duration of the project, though all access points for four wheel drive vehicles will remain open.

"While we recognize the jetty is a popular fishing destination, it is imperative that the jetty area be closed to all go park-goers for their own safety during this project," said Mark Texel, State Park Director for the DEP. "Ultimately, we will have a stronger jetty that will best serve Barnegat Inlet and the south end of our park, and jetty fishing can resume."

The Barnegat Inlet north jetty was first constructed in 1940 and raised in elevation in 1974, the DEP said. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredged the inlet and several of the smaller channels surrounding it last July in order to ensure safe navigation.

Just my 2 cents. They better make sure they actually 'engineer' what they are doing on this one. You know, butterfly affect? it could completely change the dynamics of the inlet itself.

Agate is the same company that did the project on the back end where the bulkhead was. I didn't like the result. The finished product was nothing like the original drawings. They blamed cost and inability to move the large rocks originally planned for through the C&D canal by barge because of ice that year. Original drawings had a 300' fisherman's walkway with rod holders to replace the bulkhead. Now with those small rocks, it is not a fishing destination.

Anyone know how long it will be closed for. Is it closed already? They should really adjust the price of the buggy pass, I mean you are getting less for your money. I suspect the camper brigade won't be buying passes this year.

Suppposed to be finished by October. From what I was told it'll be closed in the next couple weeks. There goes the spring bluefishing in the inlet.

You should still be able to fish the LBI side (south jetty) of the inlet. I don't think that will be affected.

NJ Adjust the price LMAO
What planet you from Kroc?

If anything they would figure out a way to raise the price because they had to spend extra $ for the inlet.

I hear you Jess, but there is a certain logic to what I'm saying.
Surf fishing in NJ is becoming more frustrating every day. Sandy Hook closes for piping plovers, no access to the north jetty, beach replenishment going on everywhere, rt. 35 construction is a real mess and making it difficult to get around. If I had more hair left, I'd be pulling it out at this point.
Sorry for the rant, but between this winter weather and all the above factors, I'm ready to go back to catching bluegills at the local pond.

Not a bad idea , I know a bunch of NY guys that would love to infect the neighborhood with their hospitality.

Funny stuff. Don't be surprised if the parking lot is constantly packed with campers this spring. They have to go somewhere.

Rob: maybe you could show me some of those bluegill hotspots.
