SH Point Beach Repairs Completed

Posted July 25th 2022

The Borough of Stone Harbor announced the completion of emergency repairs to the south-end beaches at Stone Harbor Point, and that the beach is now accessible to the public. The access ramp to the Point and the 123rd Street beach was closed due to severe erosion resulting from the May storms that hit Cape May County.

The replenishment was approved via emergency authorization from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The repairs, completed by the Department of Public Works, included the replenishment of 436 cubic yards of sand for the beach, and 128 tons of I5 gravel for the access ramp.

“Emergency beach repairs require speed and coordination,” said Mayor Judith Davies-Dunhour. “I am extremely pleased with the collaboration between Borough Administrator Bob Smith, consultant Doug Gaffney, and our Public Works Team, who were quickly able to obtain approvals, develop a plan and then complete the project ahead of schedule. The results are fantastic, and we now have clear and safe access to the beach and Point, which our visitors will enjoy throughout the rest of the summer.”

Access to the Point and 123rd street beach should remain open throughout the remainder of the season, and discussions are ongoing with the Army Corps of Engineers for a larger beach replenishment project in 2023.
