Gap in Merrimack River Jetty to be Closed

Repairs have begun to the North Jetty of the Merrimack River in Massachusetts. A large barge and crane were moved into position last week in order to add massive boulders to the jetty. Of particular concern is a gap near the base of the jetty that, if permitted to exist, could allow the migration of sand from Salisbury beach into the inlet.
