OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP)- Maryland's senior senator says planned replenishment of Ocean City's beach has been moved up a year by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
    
Sen. Ben Cardin says the $3 million project will begin after this summer is over, instead of the end of the 2018 season. The project is expected to be finished in time for the start of the 2018 summer.
    
Cardin and other politicians and officials announced the advance Monday on Ocean City's boardwalk.
    
The project will include a wide, elevated beach from Fourth Street to the Delaware state line. It will be backed by a seawall along the boardwalk and a vegetative dune system
    
It includes placing about 900,000 cubic yards of sand dredged from offshore shoals on the beach.
