MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) — A Jersey Shore town cut in half by Superstorm Sandy will soon be protected by a steel sea wall.
Mantoloking has received federal and state approval for the steel wall that will be covered by sand and form the base of a makeshift dune system.
Work is expected to begin this fall.
The borough won’t have to pay for anything but the cost of keeping it covered with sand.
Mantoloking also hired an appraiser Tuesday to determine the fair market value of land the borough is threatening to go to court and seize for a beach replenishment project.
Officials also say the reconstruction of Route 35 through the Ocean County community is due to begin Monday.
