Maurice River Walkway & Observation Deck

Maurice River WalkwayThis project included the restoration of over 1,400 acres of swamp and salt hay farms to tidal wetlands adjacent to the Maurice and Delaware Rivers in southern New Jersey.  To highlight the estuary enhancement project, PSE&G incorporated walking trails along earth berms and walkways with observation platforms extending into tidal areas for public access.  The method had been proven cost effective and durable nationally on other walkway projects.
