Ocean City Beaches Will Get $11.5 Million Renovations

Ocean City is bracing itself for a number of projects to refurbish beaches and the boardwalk during the off-season, Mayor Jay A. Gillian announced.

$11.5 million will be used to rebuild beaches at the north end of the island. About 930,000 cubic yards of sand, pulled from an area about a mile off of Great Harbor Inlet, will be added between Seaspray Road and 12th Street.

More than 90 percent of the project’s cost will be covered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the state.

The project is planned to begin at the end of October and expected to be completed by January 2018. It will be conducted in 1,000-foot sections at a time, which will be closed to beachgoers during the work.

The city’s boardwalk reconstruction project is planned to begin its final phase on Monday, Oct. 16. The boardwalk between 10th Street and 12th Street will be closed during the construction. Hoping to finish the project before the boardwalk’s opening in March 2018, Mayor Gillian noted this project is two years ahead of schedule.
