CONSTRUCTION OF SEASIDE HEIGHTS BOARDWALK TO BEGIN FEB 15TH
by Phil Stilton
SEASIDE HEIGHTS – Three months after Hurricane Sandy damaged the world-famous boardw...alk, here, Steve Carro, Vice President of Sidd and Associates & Meco Electric of Staten Island said his firm will drive the first pile into the ground next week. The company today held their weekly planning meeting and he said they confirmed a start date of Friday, February 15th.
“We plan on doing 64 pilings per day, which would be about a block’s length every two days,” he said. “Our crews would then work behind that installing girders, joists and decking,” noting that his company has been working with their subcontractors and employees on issues such as construction and safety plans and logistical planning.
“Over the next few days you should see construction trailers and equipment start showing up in Seaside Heights,” the firm’s vice president continued. “We’ll be utilizing the municipal parking lot on Grant Avenue for staging and storage of pilings.”
Initially, borough officials said the company chosen to build the boardwalk would be granted permission to build 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, but Mr. Carro said that won’t be necessary.
“We’ll be working 10 hours each day and if we need more time, you’ll be seeing us out there on weekends, but, barring any unforeseen circumstances with the delivery of material, I don’t see any problems,” he stated. “This is not a very complicated project as far as building; the most complicated part here is the time frame, but we’ve been building major projects for 30 years and I am very comfortable with this.”
The project will begin at Dupont Avenue and progress northward at the pace of one block every two days.
Butterick Bulkheading of Manahawkin has been subcontracted to install the pilings for the new boardwalk. That firm has built bulkheads, docks and decks at the Jersey Shore since 1954.
No Seaside Heights officials were available for immediate comment at press time.
It's going to require help from the community to help Save Our Shore. Unlike other New Jersey shore towns, a large portion of Seaside Heights revenue comes from business and tourism, as opposed to residential property taxes. We're going to plan some events that will hopefully help the local businesses...
