Project construction at Wreck Pond progresses with the arrival of the first section of box culvert to the site. Prior to the arrival of the first culvert section, workers onsite created a cofferdam on the beach by excavating an area, then driving steel sheeting into the ground. This created a dry enclosure into which the culvert section can be placed. In the upcoming weeks, this process will be repeated as more sections of the culvert are added in stepwise fashion.
We will recognize progress on the restoration project and those who have played a role through support of the project with a press event on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. The event will take place on the boardwalk near the corner of Brown Ave. and Ocean Ave. in Spring Lake. Be sure to check back here for more information on the event and updates on the project. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
