Construction Vehicles No Longer Allowed on A.C. Boardwalk

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Atlantic City officials are putting an end to allowing construction vehicles to drive on the Atlantic City Boardwalk due to years of structural damage caused by traffic.

Mayor Frank Gilliam says much of the Boardwalk is in disrepair because construction vehicles were allowed to drive on it.

The state is emphasizing that the Boardwalk remains safe for foot traffic, noting that a structural engineer deemed it safe for pedestrian use.

Gilliam says the city is hoping to use leftover and unallocated federal funding from Superstorm Sandy to help make repairs.

According to Gilliam, a complete renovation of the Boardwalk could cost an estimated $50 million.
