The Village of Egg Harbor is pulling out a breakwall to increase the overall shoreline of the beach by roughly 50 percent. Trustee Lisa Van Laanen says improvements are designed to avoid erosion.
The project has seen some delays including this spring due to the spawning season for various fish species. Van Laanen says much of the work can continue at all times throughout the winter and construction in the village is timed to be completed before the summer tourism season. The beach work is expected to be done by March 15th.
