Beach crossovers continue to be closed due to considerable beach erosion caused by the past few storms that have impacted our small coastal community. Each beach access point has been blocked for entrance by the Borough. No one should be entering the beach on foot or vehicle until the Borough can ensure the safety of access points. The recent storms have created erosion that has exposed jetties, rocks and pilings making the beaches completely impassable by vehicle.
Phase II of the Stone Harbor Point Project has started. The project will maintain the elevated habitat areas that were created for beach nesting and migratory birds as well as reinforce the existing dune in an effort to provide protection to the community from southerly approaching storms. Stone Harbor Point will be temporarily closed until the project is completed. The expected completion date is March 1. The affected access points will be posted.
The Borough of Stone Harbor will be working diligently over the next few months to ensure that our beaches are restored and will continue to provide updated information as it becomes available.
