The development of a State Park along the waterfront of Jersey City, New Jersey, immediately to the west of the Statue of Liberty National Monument, required the reshaping of the existing shoreline. The new shoreline would require the construction of a non-settling sand levee to protect the park from flooding and retain the fill. In addition, the levee would provide a 1 1/2 mile promenade along the reconstructed shoreline. This work required the removal and upland disposal of 75,000 cubic yards of soft river mud. The disposal site, approximately 1 mile from the dredging site, was designed to contain the material dredged from future phases of construction.
