Atlantic City Receives Grant to Extend Boardwalk

Last Edited:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.—Atlantic City has received a new grant that will help it finally put its Boardwalk plans into action.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation's "Transportation Alternatives Program" awarded the city with a grant of more than $550,000 to complete their plan to add a new stretch of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, which will attach it to Gardner's Basin. This will allow bikers and pedestrians to easily trek a little further down the boards.  

This new path will connect to the Boardwalk and create one solid path towards the southeast inlet.

The funding will also help provide LED lighting, benches, landscaping, and more to bring the new addition to the famous Boardwalk to life.

A bulkhead is also being constructed along the path by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Development Division of Coastal Engineering to serve as a seawall to protect properties in the area from flooding.
