Seaside Heights Begins Post-Sandy Rebuilding Effort

Construction to rebuild the wrecked boardwalk at Seaside Heights has begun.

Heavy equipment began drilling holes in the sand and pounding pilings into the ground Friday in the first phase of a project that could ultimately cost $6 million to $7 million. Mayor Bill Akers says the mile-long walkway should be done by May 10, but amenities like railings, lighting and ramps will come after that.

The best rehabilitation, however, might just be the departure of “Jersey Shore.” [CBS 3]
