12/16/2014 - Fireman’s Park Boardwalk Restoration Underway

Fireman’s Park Boardwalk Restoration Underway


The “Fireman’s Park Boardwalk Replacement” project was recently commenced by Bird Construction of Bayville, NJ.  The project includes the reconstruction of the existing timber boardwalk along the waterfront at Fireman’s Park.  The boardwalk was substantially damaged during Superstorm Sandy and is being partially funded through a reimbursement from FEMA.  The entire timber boardwalk will be reconstructed along with the sitting benches, bulkhead cap and steps/landings.  The project will also include the installation of Tideflex Check Valves on the existing storm pipes that penetrate the bulkhead as well as new decorative banner poles along the shore side of the boardwalk.  Lastly, a new fish cleaning station will be installed with an anticipated future connection of a water service line. 


It is expected that the project duration will be approximately 6 weeks, weather permitting.  The boardwalk will be closed for the duration of the project. Residents are requested to avoid the construction site until the project is completed. For more information you may contact the borough administrator’s office at 732.739.5122
