After Sandy, feds mull plan for artificial islands

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 03/29/2014 - 21:59

This artist rendering provided by WXY/West 8/Stevens Institute of Technology shows a proposed project to create a string of artificial barrier islands off the coast of New Jersey and New York to protect the shoreline from storm surges like the ones that caused billions of dollars’ worth of damage during Superstorm Sandy. The “Blue Dunes” project, conceived by New Jersey’s Stevens Institute of Technology and two architectural firms, would cost $10 billion to $12 billion, and would stretch from central Long Island, N.Y., to the southern tip of Long Beach Island in New Jersey. Many logistical, political, financial and technical issues would have to be overcome before the project could be built. It is part of the Rebuild By Design contest being held by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to solicit new ideas to protect the region from future storms.
