The boardwalk reopened on March 10 (2016) after completion of a reconstruction project between Plaza Place (just north of Seventh Street) and Eighth Street. Runners and bicyclists are no longer being detoured. Sign up for project update alerts by email .
Runners, pedestrians and cyclists were detoured off the Boardwalk at Sixth Street and Eighth Street and sent down to Atlantic Avenue. The detour added about 0.41 miles to a run the length of the boardwalk (from 2.45 miles to 2.86 miles).
New pavilions on the ocean side of the boardwalk at 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th streets are in the permitting stage with the state Department of Environmental Protection. Construction of the pavilions could begin during the next phase of boardwalk reconstruction in the off-season of 2016-17.
14TH STREET AND 19TH STREET BOARDWALK RAMPS
An ADA ramp providing access to the boardwalk at 19th Street is in the design stage (19th Street is the only boardwalk entrance accessible from the street only by stairs). This project likely will begin after the summer. A request to widen the 14th Street boardwalk ramp to provide easier access for vehicles with floats is also in the design stage.
