With the use of ground asphalt combined with stone on the road surface, ballast rock at the edge of the water (on the pond side), top soil on crown of bank (future growth of phragmites) and large pieces of concrete on the bank bordering the bay.

Bricksboro Bulkhead Project
Due to flooding in the Bricksboro area from a failed bulkhead the Township of Maurice River contracted to replace a 100-ft section of the Bricksboro Bulkhead that fell within a previously granted easement area. Two private property owners, utilizing the Township NJDEP permit, also contracted to complete sections located on their properties. The new bulkhead was placed directly in front of the old on the waterside. New corrugated pipe was installed to accommodate drainage of the ditch.
Pictures show the bulkhead before repair as well as after..
