Belmar Is Getting Set For a Grand Reopening

May 22nd is the date that the boardwalk should reopen. Here’s how the progress is going.

The final boards have been laid and now the railings are going up.

Concession trailers and bathrooms will be put up until permanent facilities can be built next year.

The mayor says the lighting may not be installed in time, which would mean the borough would have to go with temporary spotlights or something else to fix that problem.

But otherwise the boardwalk and beach will be ready in time for the grand reopening.

And Belmar looks forward to the celebration., The elementary school students (of Belmar and St. Rose schools) will be inivted, and the Belmar Strong volunteers will be honored.

There are plans for a ribbon-cutting on the boardwalk and other presentations and honors as well.

Belmar is hopeful that Governor Christie will stop by to kick off the tourism season on Memorial Day weekend.

And it couldn’t come soon enough. Belmar’s Ocean Avenue has been off-limits, for the most part, since Hurricane Sandy destroyed the boardwalk and beach dunes.
