SB’s Assessing Sea Wall Damage

first_imgBy John BurtonSEA BRIGHT – The closing of part of Ocean Avenue for the better part of four days late last week has the mayor worried it could have exposed a potentially serious – and expensive – problem for the borough.With last weekend’s nor’easter bringing heavy rain and high winds, state and local law enforcement and local emergency management decided to close the northern portion of Ocean Avenue/ state Highway 36 when it flooded and created a potentially hazardous condition.North shore of Sea Bright.Ocean Avenue, from the entrance of the Capt. Azzolina Memorial Bridge in the north to Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge at the Route 520 intersection, was closed until Monday afternoon.Flooding has been a chronic problem for the small town running between the Atlantic Ocean and the Shrewsbury River. But what seems most troubling about this occurrence is that the road flooding appears to have been caused by breaches in the sea wall, running the length of highway.Last weekend’s storm coincided with higher than normal tides, and that stretch of sea wall is lower than it is in other parts of the town. “Basically, we had waves breaking on the highway for four days,” Mayor Dina Long said.The ocean “was coming through the sea wall, over the top of the sea wall, under the sea wall,” she said.It appears Super Storm Sandy in October caused several breaches in that stretch of sea wall, and its impact became even more apparent with the latest storm.Long was in contact with state Department of Envi­ron­­mental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin, who assigned a deputy commissioner “to expeditiously analyze the situation and come back with some recommendations,” interim borough administrator Joseph Verruni said.DEP engineers were on site Monday, Long said, along with state Department of Trans­portation (DOT) work crews that cleared debris and a considerable amount of sand that washed onto the roadway.DEP spokesman Bob Considine said Wednesday that the department was “still assessing” the situation.Long said that given the beating that section of wall took from Sandy, “it’s undermined in a couple of places.”The mayor said she would have to wait for the engineers’ report because knowing the extent of the damage and what that means for the long term.“It’s always an issue of who owns the sea wall,” and who is responsible when situations like this arise, Long said.In the past the state contributed most of the cost for repairing it. During the early 1990’s storm damage came with a substantial price tag attached, though Long did not know the cost. When the state took the lead on the repairs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – which is conducting a beach replenishment project here – took the position it wasn’t its responsibility, Long said.That hasn’t prevented Sea Bright from applying to the corps’ Civil Works Program for assistance in repairing the wall following Sandy. Borough officials also have sought assistance for this and other projects from the Federal Emer­gency Management Agency (FEMA).She said, “We’re not having much luck with FEMA,” with the borough council decision last week to drop out of the agency’s Sheltering and Tem­porary Electric Power (STEP) program for resident assistance, contending it was overly complicated and the agency was slow to act.The sea wall was erected during the 1940s and ran parallel to tracks for the Central Jersey Railroad, which operated a commuter line through the area, Long said her research showed. The cost of the original construction was a three-way split among federal, state and local.The impacted section of Ocean Avenue is structurally sound. “We don’t foresee any issue with the roadway itself,” said DOT spokesman Tim Greeley.Now it’s a matter of waiting for the final analysis and determining how to address it – and hope for clear weather in the interim, Long said.“Obviously, I’m a little nervous about that,” she said.last_img read more

Meet the new Sheriff in town for the Leafs

first_imgThere’s a new sheriff in town patrolling the ice surface at the NDCC Arena.Instead of a shiny badge this sheriff wears a “C” on his jersey.His name is Colton Schell and promises bigger and better times ahead for the Green and White on his watch.“I feel this year will be a lot better than last year,” the 20-year-old New Westminster native said prior to stepping onto the ice this week.“I feel we’re going to be better a lot sooner than last year and challenge for the division because so far everyone’s getting along . . . we’re all friends and we all are eager to put in the hard work to be successful.”This is Schell’s third go-around with the Leafs. That veteran leadership played a big part in No. 18 getting the “C” on his jersey prior to the start of the current campaign.“We’re happy with Colton being our captain and we think he’s going to be a great leader,” Leaf skipper Frank Maida told The Nelson Daily.“This is (Schell’s) third season here, and being 20 (years old) and wanting to come back as a 20-year-old and Colton being a leader off the ice helped us make the final decision.”Fans have seen the Leaf franchise take a slide the past few seasons back to number 3 in the hotly contested Neil Murdoch Division behind Castlegar and Beaver Valley.During that period Nelson failed to get out of the first round of the playoffs, losing to both the Rebels and Hawks. A reason for the drop after Nelson dominated not only the division but also the league in the latter years of the last decade has been the lack of stability behind the bench.The unsteadiness at the coaching ranks only led to a less than cohesive dressing room.“We all have to come to the rink ready to play, not only in games but also at practice during the week,” Schell explained. “There was a lot of joking around in between periods and a lot of drama off the ice that affected the team.”“That has to, and has already, change this season,” added Schell, finishing the last season with 23 goals and 42 assists in 48 games.Schell also proved to be a feisty player, accumulating 92 minutes in penalties.Of course two games doesn’t make a season for any team.Especially when the team plays a four-game exhibition season that the coaching staff uses to get a good look a rookies on the team.“I feel we’re going to be better sooner than later,” Schell said, after Nelson opened the season gaining one of a possible four points during a two-game set against Castlegar – playing to a 5-5 tie Friday and losing 1-0 Saturday in the Sunflower City.“We’re starting the season with everyone getting along with each other really well. We all talk and there’s no little groups like there was last year which I feel is a must to have success in any league.”Those idiosyncrasies every player brings to the rink has will be put to the test when Nelson plays the next three games on the road, beginning Thursday in Grand Forks against the new-and-improved Bruins.After going through the entire season with only one victory, the Bruins got that monkey off their back on opening weekend after surprising the Beaver Valley Nitehawks 3-2 in overtime.No doubt the new sheriff of the Leafs has already told his mates to be ready.ICE CHIPS: The Leafs had left-winger Brendan Colter in camp on a tryout basis. Princeton Posse released the 6-foot winger after Colter scored nine times in 39 games for the Okanagan Division squad. No word from the coaching staff if Colter will see any action this weekend. . . .Coach Maida was non-committal on the injured players, including two defencemen, Blake Arcuri and Andy Miller. All players are listed as day-to-day. . . . Nelson travels to Creston Saturday and Beaver Valley September 28 before returning home to face the defending KIJHL champs Saturday, September 29.last_img read more
