Crews work to restore Ortley Beach sand dunes destroyed by nor’easter

Crews were out rebuilding temporary sand dunes at the Jersey Shore Thursday after a winter nor'easter washed much of the sand away from the shoreline.



Truckers were in Ortley Beach to bring in new sand for the temporary dunes. Contractors tell News 12 New Jersey that it may take about two weeks to complete the project.



Monday's storm severely eroded the beach in the town starting at Harding Avenue.



The Army Corps of Engineers will start working on a permanent dune system in late March or April.
