Capital Projects

Ocean City in recent years has committed an unprecedented level of funding to completing long-neglected projects. The city plans to spend almost $112 million over the next five years to improve every part of island from the beach and boardwalk to the bay. Check here for regular updates on every project. The work is guided by a five-year capital plan.

BEACH

The Army Corps of Engineers completed beachfill projects at the north and south ends of Ocean City in 2015. For the first time, beaches and dunes are restored across the length of the island. A contractor returned in spring 2016 to restore sand lost in storms in October 2015 and January 2016.

BAY

Crews are at work hauling material away from disposal sites to make room for new dredging projects to make shallow lagoons and channels navigable. The city is working with state and federal officials to find a viable solution to maintaining the bayside from "tip to tip."
