PICTURES > The re-invention of Atlantic City continues. The fast-paced repair, replace, fortification and lengthening of our world famous Boardwalk. Three unique construction sites are active along the front beach and inlet sides of AC.
Focus Less on State Take-over, Casino Contraction & Taxes. Instead: Watch Stockton, Atlantic City Boardwalk & Lighthouse District Projects.
Contractors, under the direction of the Army Corp of Engineers, are concurrently working on 3 waterfront areas. They’ll all eventually be joined together.
A variety of projects are well underway, much of them finished by Summer of 2017. Once completed, you’ll be able to traverse our Absecon Island Boardwalk from the border of Ventnor / Margate….all the way….almost…. to the foot of Gardner’s Basin and the Atlantic City Aquarium.
- Remove Inlet section of old, damaged boardwalk & pilings, replace with new
- Build new steel seawall, strengthen with jetty rocks
- Provide conduit for electricity, communications, fiber-optics, etc.
- Install pre-formed, steel-reinforced (rebar) concrete structures to handle wooden boards, joists, railings, etc.
Like the Transcontinental Railroad, the build-out of the interstate highway system, and the Atlantic City Expressway….. the rebuilt boardwalk will accelerate real estate development.
Properties adjacent to the updated Atlantic City Boardwalk…..as well as the end point at Gardner’s Basin…will grow in value.
Editor’s note: Shame on Atlantic City for letting the jewel called Gardner’s Basin languish for 35 years.
