City Council approves all-wood option for Boardwalk renovation project following public hearing, online poll.

 

The Ocean City Council voted Monday to renovate the Boardwalk using an all wood decking following a public hearing on the project. Funding and other details of the project are to be discussed at a later date.

 

While the all-wood option was the most expensive of the three options, the majority of council members felt that preserving the tradition and heritage of the wooden boardwalk outweighed the additional cost.

 

 

Option 2 with a plain concrete train lane

Boardwalk Option 1: - All Board Surface

Replaces the existing Boardwalk with a new all wood surface. The supporting structure of the Boardwalk might be built with different materials; however, the Boardwalk would look essentially the same as it does now. This is the most traditional option; it is also the most expensive to build and maintain.


 

Option 2 with a plain concrete train lane

Boardwalk Option 2: - Boards with a plain concrete train lane

Replaces the existing Boardwalk from 4th to 27th streets with a combination of wood boards and concrete. The Boardwalk would be divided into three lanes. Two outer 11-foot-wide lanes would be built with a wood surface, the inner 11-foot-wide lane, where the Boardwalk train usually runs, would be a plain concrete surface that would look much like the train lane that currently exists south of 4th Street. This option is the least expensive to build and maintain.


 

Option 3 with a plain concrete train lane

Boardwalk Option 3: Boards with a stamped concrete train lane

Similar to Option 2, this would replace the existing Boardwalk from 4th to 27th streets with two outer lanes surfaced with boards and an inner concrete train lane. The concrete would be colored and stamped to look like wood boards. This option is more expensive than Option 2, however, it is still considerably less expensive than the all wood option #1.

 

 

Voting has closed and the Town of Ocean City would like to thank everyone for their votes!
