Construction, a subcontractor of Weeks Marine, will commence preliminary dune
construction on the Seaside Heights beach on or around Tuesday, September 5th.
The preliminary work involves building timber bulkhead retaining walls that
will connect the Boardwalk Promenade with each dune crossover. Agate will
first construct the bulkheads north of Casino Pier, and is authorized to move
to South Beach on or after September 11th (after Wine On The Beach). The
existing beach ramps will be removed as the construction date for the beach
fill project gets closer, now estimated to begin on November 30th.
thirteen (13) beach ramps located at street ends will be eliminated. The
contractor will construct ten (10) new pedestrian entrance points
("crossovers") connecting the Boardwalk and beach. Five (5)
crossovers will be located at North Beach and five (5) crossovers will be
located at South Beach. Nine (9) of the crossovers will be handicap
accessible. Seven (7) of the ten (10) new crossovers will be relocated
from street ends to mid-block. The mid-block crossovers will be located:
Sampson and Carteret Aves
Between Carteret and Kearney Aves
Between Fremont and Hancock Aves
Between Hancock and Sheridan Aves
Between Blaine and Sumner Aves
Between Sumner and Webster Aves
Lincoln Ave crossover will be located south (toward Dupont Ave) approximately
Hiering Ave will have one pedestrian crossover and one vehicle drive-over.
Grant Ave will have one vehicle drive-over.
Hamilton Ave will have one pedestrian crossover located approximately where the
existing beach ramp is located.
Franklin Ave will have one vehicle drive-over that will provide secondary
vehicular access, but will be used as a non-handicap accessible pedestrian
access point during the beach operating season.
