Access to ‘Dog Beach’ Limited During Parking Lot Project

first_imgKathy McAndrew’s trip to the Malibu Beach Wildlife Management Area on Wednesday was blocked by orange fencing, “no access” signs and unbudging construction workers.Access to Dog Beach is expected to be restored for the weekend but blocked again on Monday, Aug. 3.She had made the trip with her sister and her chocolate Labrador retriever.A post-Superstorm Sandy parking lot improvement project prevented McAndrew and a host of other visitors from Philadelphia, Camden, Burlington County and many nearby towns from using what’s commonly known as “Dog Beach.”The small stretch of sand on Great Egg Harbor Inlet just north of the Ocean City-Longport Bridge is one of the only beaches along the Jersey Shore where dogs are permitted in the summer.Access is expected to be restored this weekend, but blocked again on Monday.“As of today, the construction work is done for the weekend,” state Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Bob Considine said on Friday (July 31). “They are improvising to allow pedestrian traffic to safely walk through the construction area this weekend.”Considine said parking will be available in the (fishing pier) lot across the roadway.He said there will be “No Parking” signs in the area of the bird habitat and Division of Fish and Wildlife conservation officers will be on the scene to make sure folks aren’t walking into the protected bird habitat area.Because the parking lot was closed, some visitors apparently accessed the beach through an area currently closed off for endangered bird nesting, Considine said.He said the lot is owned by the state Division of Fish and Wildlife, but the work is being done by Cape May County.County Engineer Dale Foster said that Monday will be the last day of no pedestrian access to the beach through the unpaved parking lot. He said the lot will reopen to cars and pedestrians on Tuesday (Aug. 4).Foster said that even though the area is part of Atlantic County, Cape May County has jurisdictional responsibility for that part of the county road. Canines enjoy Dog Beach on Thursday before parking lot construction work started for the day.last_img read more

Champions League: Messi leads Barcelona to 2-1 win against PSV Eindhoven

first_imgLionel Messi scored an excellent individual goal and laid on another as Barcelona beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 to secure top spot in Group B of the Champions League on Wednesday.Messi provided an assist for defender Gerard Pique to score the second for the Spanish side, who have 13 points from their five matches and an unassailable lead at the top of the pool. PSV will finish bottom.Captain Luuk de Jong scored a late consolation for the home side as they matched Barcelona for much of the contest at the Philips Stadion, striking the woodwork three times in the first half alone and missing a number of other chances.In a bright start, PSV forward Gaston Pereiro latched onto a poor pass from Ivan Rakitic but his low drive came back off the post, and minutes later he shot over the crossbar from five yards.PSV had some good fortune, too, though, as Barca had two efforts cleared off the line within the space of a minute, with Arturo Vidal the unlucky player on both occasions.His hooked effort from 12 yards was cleared by Pablo Rosario before Angelino blocked the Chilean’s goal-bound header from the resulting corner.It was Barcelona thanking their lucky stars just before halftime, though, when De Jong’s header from a free-kick came off the crossbar and the follow-up from close-range by Denzel Dumfries struck the post.The visitors took the lead just past the hour mark, thanks to a typical piece of Messi magic as he picked up the ball on the edge of the box and, with four defenders around him, managed to drive forward and provide a thunderous finish.advertisementIt was 2-0 with 20 minutes remaining when the Argentine’s free kick was guided into the PSV net by an unmarked Pique.De Jong set up a frenetic finish with his headed goal but Barcelona were able to hold on under heavy home pressure.last_img read more
