Famous Wildwoods Boardwalk Gets Major Face Lift

Cedar Avenue Boardwalk extension reconstruction

The Cedar Avenue portion takes center stage with a complete replacement, featuring a brand new timber-framed boardwalk. The timber piles and framing are now complete, with the decking currently in the installation phase. Cedar Avenue renovations will also include new signage parallel to the gateway. The city is working to secure new lighting from Schellenger to Cedar Avenues on the Boardwalk.

Oak to Schellenger Aves repairs

The stretch from Oak to Schellenger Avenues is in the final stages, with 90 percent of the deteriorated timber framing repairs completed. The remaining section is awaiting delivery of materials, which are expected on-site within the next week.

Schellenger Ave to Spicer Ave rehabilitation 

For the Schellenger Ave to Spicer Ave portion, rehabilitation includes extensive work on the existing concrete substructure, featuring concrete repairs and a fresh protective coating. A completely new timber-framed superstructure and decking are also part of this revitalization effort.

Progress across all three areas is on track, with construction scheduled for completion at the beginning of May. This extends the recently completed Boardwalk renovations from 26th Ave down to Spicer Ave. 

Future phases are currently in the planning stage.

Street end improvements and ADA access ramps

The city has also awarded a contract for street end improvements and ADA access ramps at Spicer and Maple Avenues. This comprehensive project includes beautification and functional upgrades to existing ramps and street ends.

Expect new sidewalks, landscape gardens, benches, bike racks, pedestrian access tunnels under the Boardwalk and ADA access ramps on the ocean side of the Boardwalk. The project recently began and is expected to conclude in June.

Governor Phil Murphy has played a pivotal role in the reconstruction of the Boardwalk over the past three years; earlier this year, he signed New Jersey's $100 million Boardwalk Preservation Fund into law.

Governor Murphy committed an initial round of state funding for Wildwood, totaling $4 million in 2021. Additionally, in the preceding year, the U.S. Economic Development Administration unveiled a grant of $3.2 million, complemented by $845,000 in local funds.

The primary boardwalk work is being down by Fred. M. Schiavone Construction, who has completed phases of the construction in prior years.
