The highly developed communities along the south shore of Long Island, NY, from Jones Inlet to East Rockaway Inlet, have repeatedly experienced major flooding during storm events. In October 2012, Super Storm Sandy severely damaged the area, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. The completed project now provides coastal storm damage risk reduction to the area.
This project’s initial construction of groins, sand placement and crossover structures was completed in March 2020.
Please contact the City of Long Beach for any onsite information.
