Delaware’s Congressional delegation says Bethany Beach and South Bethany will receive more than $8 million in federal funds to repair coastline damaged by storms last year.

Sens. Tom Carper and Ted KAUFMAN and Rep. Mike Castle announced the funding on Wednesday.

Federal officials say the beach repairs will also reinforce the coastline against future storms.

No date has been set for work to begin, but federal officials say it will not start before October.
