Work on the north jetty of Barnegat Inlet, at Island Beach State Park, has led to barges and other pieces of equipment being anchored in the inlet's main channel, which runs along the jetty.
A reporter from NBC10 took a closer look at the situation this week, as seen in the video above.
The project is expected to began in March and is expected to be completed in the late fall, state officials said.
Superstorm Sandy caused the displacement of stone along the 740 feet of jetty being repaired. The repair work will involve rebuilding the cross-section of the jetty using existing capstone, supplemented with additional capstone, corestone, slushed concrete and stone-filled mattresses.
