Snag in jetty repair project

(Continued)

There has been uncertainty about whether the boulders brought in by contractors would be delivered over the dunes or from barges in the river, but O’Donnell indicated the bids call for an “overland” delivery.

The engineer said that his agency will move the appeals process as expeditiously as possible but offered no estimate of when the work might start.

Local and state officials are hoping to obtain federal funds to improve the north jetty as well, but federal officials doubt that such money will be available soon.

Still, Tarr said that the Alliance would draft a letter to appropriate federal funding authorities so that the north jetty can be considered for repair.
