Demolition begins on Sayreville homes bought out by state as part of Blue Acres project
Demolition began in Sayreville Thursday on homes bought out by the government after Sandy.
A house on Weber Avenue was the first to come down.
The state purchased 171 homes in Sayreville and South River in the latest round of Blue Acres buyouts.
Land in flood-prone neighborhoods will be left as open space to buffer the rest of the community.
