A bulkhead along the Manasquan Inlet in Point Pleasant Beach suffered more damage during Tuesday’s nor’easter.
The particular section of the aluminum bulkhead is a known trouble spot that has been patched as a temporary fix in the past, borough officials say.
Mayor Stephen Reid told NJ.com that about an 8-foot section of the bulkhead is missing, adding that he was in touch with the state Department of Environmental Protection to “express the urgency for a permanent fix.”
A $600,000 repair was already slated for the wall, which was constructed nearly 90 years ago, News 12 reported.
For now, Reid has closed the immediate area the breach, a popular fishing spot, due to the danger.
