Construction on the Coast

March 3, 2017

Construction is booming on the islands along the South Jersey coast. Upscale homes in Sea Isle, Cape May, and Ocean City are popping up on every street. Scott Halliday, of Halliday-Leonard General Contractors of Ocean City, was recently featured in an article where he explains the definition and buyers’ expectation of high-end has radically changed in the last 20 years.  The buyers want custom cabinets, countertops, exotic flooring and staircases, and most want an elevator, he said. Read full article here.

It’s not only high-end homes that are getting facelifts. In Ocean City, the boardwalk is getting re-decked and the most flood-prone neighborhoods are getting new drain pipes, valves, and a reconfigured water flow and pumping systems. Ocean City will spend $10.4 million on road and drainage projects¬†in 2017¬†and $40.3 million in¬†total over the next five years. Check out OCNJ Projects¬†to learn more. Also, E-Z pass is coming to the Ocean Drive Bridges this summer from Ocean City to Wildwood according to The Cape May County Bridge Commission, read more here.

The full length of the Ocean City Boardwalk reopened on Wednesday, Feb. 15th.  A wide stretch of completed decking is now in place along the storefronts in a project area between 8th Street and 10th Street. Work to restore the full width of the boardwalk, to rebuild entrances, to construct five new boardwalk pavilions, and to re-install railings and light posts continues.
