OLD BRIDGE - A park on the Raritan Bay battered by Superstorm Sandy will get federal dollars to rebuild.

The beach in Waterfront Park in Old Bridge was heavily damaged in the storm nearly one year ago.

FEMA has awarded nearly $2 million to repair the beach and dunes, and according to Rep. Frank Pallone, that will cover 90 percent of the cost.

Beachgoers say the storm took a toll on their favorite spot and they are glad to hear repairs will be made.

Additional sand to extend the beach and enhance dunes will be part of the repairs.
