Professor Farhadzadeh and his CIV 423/523 students visit Army Corps Long Beach project
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is currently working on $230 million coastal protection project, with the intention of protecting Long Island from future super storms. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy decimated the shoreline in fall of 2012. The beach lost roughly 294,000 cubic yards of sand because of Sandy. Such damage severely impacted city and beach revenue. Therefore, this project has been deemed crucial. It will include the reconstruction of 15 jetties/groins, sand replenishment, and dune crossovers.
