PORT MONMOUTH - Progress has been made in a beach replenishment project along the Bayshore in Port Monmouth.

A new beach and dunes built by the Army Corps of Engineers have been completed, 21 months after Superstorm Sandy.

Work began last month as sand was brought in from the ocean floor off Sea Bright and pumped onto the shoreline.

Sandy left the area so eroded that there was virtually no beach left at all.

The fishing pier will be extended nearly 200 feet and a 300-foot rock jetty will be installed to help prevent the new sand from drifting.

It's all expected to be finished by next summer.  The area remains closed to the public during construction.
