VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A New Jersey company is the winner of a $15.3 million contract to replenish sand at Virginia Beach's Sandbridge Beach.
    
Virginia Beach says in a news release that Weeks Marine of Camden, N.J., is expected to begin the project in December. The work is expected to be completed by May 15, 2013.
    
The contract awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers calls for 2 million cubic yards of sand to be placed along the 5-mile beach from Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge to the Dam Neck Naval Facility.
    
Weeks Marine has done four previous beach replenishment projects in Virginia Beach.
