2,000 loads of fill help repair wildlife drive at E.B. Forsythe Refuge

Construction has begun at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey, to repair the extensive damages that occurred to the refuge’s popular wildlife drive during Hurricane Sandy. Approximately 2,000 dump truck loads of fill will be required to repair the damage from the superstorm. The Federal Highway Administration is funding the work through the emergency relief to federally owned roads program. Construction is projected to take several months, but the drive is expected to be open for visitors this spring.
