LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) - Work to widen Monmouth County beaches that were pounded by Superstorm Sandy has been completed.

New Jersey and federal officials say the work wrapped up last week in Long Branch, completing a stretch of newly widened beaches from Sandy Hook to the Manasquan Inlet.

Portions of Long Beach Island, and Atlantic and Cape May County beaches also were done within the last year, with additional projects to come this fall and winter in those areas.

A big problem, particularly in Ocean County, is getting beachfront property owners to sign easements allowing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to do the work.

The Monmouth beaches have been restored to better shape than they were before Sandy hit in Oct. 2012.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
