I'm interested to see what this breakwater ends up looking like. You gotta love these sand pumping projects: sand gets pumped in to AC and Ventnor. Within a few weeks/months/years, it ends up down in Margate and Longport (bigger beaches without needing to pump down our way) and in the Great Egg Harbor Inlet and intracoastal where it then gets dredged. It's craziness, but where would the island be now without it?
My hope is that the ocean will do its scouring job on the north end of the island and things will return to "normal" (given that those beaches are about as unnatural as it gets) during this tropical storm season (just hoping here... I have no qualifications to make a judgement on the matter).
