Most of the work involves widening the beach. However, in some areas, the dunes, beach access points and sand fencing will be repaired.The project will counteract erosion to the beaches and dunes caused by storms and churned up surf.There are also contract options for additional sand. The options could be exercised depending on surveys and the condition of the beaches. The cost of the base contract and all of the contract options is $41.3 million.The contract includes conducting periodic nourishment of two separate Coastal Storm Risk Management projects:The Great Egg Harbor and Peck Beach project extends from Surf Road to 34th Street in Ocean City. It includes an elevated berm and was first constructed in 1992. The project has been periodically nourished over the years, resulting in a wider beach. Periodic nourishment is cost-shared at 65 percent federal and 35 percent non-federal.The Great Egg Harbor Inlet to Townsends Inlet project extends from 34th Street in Ocean City to Townsends Inlet and includes southern Ocean City, Strathmere in Upper Township, and Sea Isle City. Initial construction of the project was completed in 2016.Both projects are joint efforts of the Army Corps’ Philadelphia District, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the three municipalities. Work is designed to reduce damages from coastal storms.In the next several weeks, the Army Corps will coordinate with Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. on the dredging and construction schedule.Previously, the Army Corps said the work is expected to be done in the fall, winter and spring and be completed in time for the summer tourism season. More than 1 million cubic yards of new sand will help to replenish Ocean City’s shoreline. 455,000 cubic yards of sand in south Ocean City from 49th to 59th Street 410,000 cubic yards of sand in Strathmere from Corsons Inlet to Prescott Roadcenter_img 250,000 cubic yards of sand in north Sea Isle City from the southern end of Whale Beach to 52nd Street The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $32.5 million contract for beach replenishment projects in Ocean City and two other towns in Cape May County.The contract with Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., of Oak Brook, Illinois, calls for dredging more than 2.4 million cubic yards of sand and placing it on the beaches in Ocean City, Strathmere and Sea Isle City.The sand will be pumped onto the beach at the following locations:800,000 cubic yards of sand in north Ocean City from Seaview Road to 13th Streetlast_img read more

first_img Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Kike’ Hernandez completed the night’s power display with a two-run home run later in the sixth inning and Taylor finished a simple single shy of the cycle, going 3 for 4 with a double, a triple and a home run.The bombs-away offense provided cover for Kershaw to continue working his way back from the lower back strain that landed him on the DL at the start of June.“Games like this, you just try to get guys back in the dugout as fast as possible, the way they’re swinging the bats,” Kershaw said.In his third start back, Kershaw went six innings – his longest outing since May 1, before back-to-back trips to the DL with biceps tendinitis and a lower back strain.Kershaw is not sharp yet. But he only allowed single runs in the second and fourth – doubles by Elias Diaz followed by an RBI single by David Freese each time. The rest of the Pirates went hitless against Kershaw, who struck out only two (Nova both times).“I made some mistakes,” he said. “There’s probably some things to work on if I’m getting to two strikes and they’re putting the ball in play like that.” It is all very shocking – even to Muncy.“Absolutely,” he said. “I never thought I could hit this many home runs in such a short time. I’m just showing up every day and trying to do something to help the team.“I keep saying it’s just changes in my swing that put me in a better position to take advantage of the power I do have. … Honestly, it’s just a combination of small things that have all come together.”That is a coy way of saying “launch angle” and the new hot phrase in evaluator-speak – “impacting the baseball.”The Dodgers have done that with resounding success in the past two games against the Pirates, scoring 25 runs on 32 hits. The home runs have come at a June-like pace, 10 in the two games. They had nine extra-base hits in consecutive games for the first time since May 17-18, 1929.None of Tuesday’s offense came from Matt Kemp. He went hitless in four at-bats, striking out three times, to end his streak of consecutive hits at eight plate appearances.Joc Pederson and Muncy hit back-to-back home runs Monday night and did it again Tuesday – in the first five pitches of the game from Pirates starter Ivan Nova.Muncy took Nova deep again leading off the third inning. Yasmani Grandal just missed repeating that an inning later, settling for a triple off the top of the center-field wall instead. So Chris Taylor followed with a two-run home run.Grandal cleared the fence leading off the sixth inning, the fifth home run off Nova. No pitcher in the Pirates’ 137-year history had ever given up five home runs in a game before.Related Articles Fans in Boston and Anaheim would rise to that challenge. But Muncy is undoubtedly the most unexpected entrant in that discussion.Discarded as a minor-league free agent last April after rattling around the Oakland A’s farm system for parts of six seasons, Muncy was a non-roster invitee to the Dodgers’ big-league camp this spring but got only 14 at-bats in Cactus League games before being sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City to start the season.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Now he is the first Dodger to 20 home runs (despite spending the first three weeks of the season in Triple-A). Only two players in the National League have more home runs than Muncy – Colorado’s Nolan Arenado and Washington’s Bryce Harper. Only two players in the majors have a higher OPS than Muncy’s 1.069 (minimum 150 plate appearances) – Boston’s Mookie Betts and the Angels’ Mike Trout. Only Betts has a higher slugging percentage than Muncy’s .649 (again, 150 plate appearances minimum).“He’s hitting good pitching, left-handed pitching, taking walks when he needs to,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “That’s the thing – it’s not one of those things where the league can figure him out because he’s covering a lot of pitches and he’s not afraid to walk.“Like I said the other night, it’s not surprising anymore. He understands his swing. He’s a baseball player. He’s putting up All-Star numbers. That’s just the way it is. That’s just the truth.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – JULY 03: Clayton Kershaw #22 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches during the first inning of a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Dodger Stadium on July 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

I don’t think anyone can argue with that.”last_img read more

first_imgDoug McComb won the first two NASCAR Late Model races of the year at Irwindale Speedway. But Valencia’s Chris Carmody said all he needed was to start ahead of McComb to have a shot at winning a race himself. He got that chance a couple of weeks ago and won the first race of his career in the Late Model division at Irwindale Speedway. Carmody, driving one of four cars for Tim Huddleton’s High Point Racing team, started third and finished 1.685 seconds ahead of second-place Richie Altman. Huddleston ended up 13th and the other High Point Racing driver, Scott Jenkins, completed only 20 laps of the 50-lap race and finished 26th. Carmody said he knows he has some ground to make up if he wants to catch McComb in the standings. “But I know I got a good enough team to win the championship,” Carmody said. In addition to winning the Late Model race at Irwindale Speedway April 28, he and Meier were in a Late Model race at the Bullring in Las Vegas last weekend. Meier won that race, with Carmody coming in second. It only increased Meier and Carmody’s confidence in their teams. Carmody is driving one of the oldest cars in the Late Model division at Irwindale Speedway. It’s the car Huddleston raced in 2004 and won four races. If he learned anything from his first win, Carmody said, it’s that all the cars at High Point Racing are strong. “Now I know that all my teammates are fast,” Carmody said. “It’s going to be hard to get by them.” The NASCAR Super Stocks, Mini Stocks and Pure Stocks are scheduled to race at Irwindale Speedway tonight. Bryan Harrell of Riverside leads the Super Stock standings. Rich DeLong III of Newhall is 13th in the Super Stock standings. Tyler Rogers of Riverside leads the Mini Stock standings. Jeff Elder of Redlands leads the Pure Stocks standings. Dennis Ivarsson of Saugus is 15th in the Pure Stocks standings. Gates open at 4 p.m. Races start at 7.

The win put Carmody in fourth place in the track’s Late Model standings and 32 points behind McComb, the division leader. Carmody will get a chance to narrow the gap even more at Irwindale Speedway tonight. Three of the drivers for High Point Racing started first, second and third in the race. At one point, Carmody said all three of his teammates were ahead of him in the race. “I had all three of my teammates in front of me,” said Carmody, a Saugus High graduate. “I knew I had to stay smooth and race them all a little cleaner.” Jace Meier turned out to be Carmody’s strongest challenge, but he ran into mechanical problems near the end of the race and fell to 10th. last_img read more
