Army Corp. ground breaking has commenced. Storm protection, here we come!

This will be an easy post. I’ll just copy and paste what our City Manager wrote on Facebook:

“Proud and pumped to represent Long Beach as we broke ground yesterday on the decades in the making fully federally funded Army Corps Shoreline Protection project! Our City Council gave clear direction – we can no longer tolerate leaving our barrier island and our homes unprotected. Since Superstorm Sandy, the City’s critical infrastructure has been upgraded with resilience, and this is another huge step forward of our continued progress. We sincerely thank Senator Schumer for his incredible assistance in making this project happen.”
