POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) - The owners of a popular Jersey shore beach and the state say they’re making progress toward settling a lawsuit challenging New Jersey’s plan to build protecting sand dunes along its coast.

Jenkinson’s Pavillion and the state have asked a federal judge for a seventh adjournment of the case while they explore a settlement, until April 6.

Both sides are to meet on March 21.

Jenkinson’s sued the state and federal governments trying to block the dune project planned for its land in Point Pleasant Beach.

They are one of several property owners along the shore, particularly in northern Ocean County, who are suing the state over the dune proposal.

Beachfront owners in Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Brick, Long Beach Island and Margate are among those suing.
