State Of The City Beach Renourishment Completion

I am extremely proud that the 2013 beach renourishment was completed ahead of schedule, on budget, and without any major issues. The Vanderbilt Beach sector began on October 14th and was completed on November 14th with delivery of 89,927 tons. The Park Shore sector began on October 16th and was completed on December 6th with 122,500 tons delivered.
