The Atalantic City Boardwalk is going to be extended all along the Absecon Inlet to Gardners Basin. A seawall will be built along the boardwalk to protect it from damage from the sea.
The boardwalk used to go along the inlet but it was damaged in the hurricane of 1944 and never replaced.
The project is part of the city's plan to develop the whole Northeast inlet. This two-year, $50 million project is being funded by city, state and federal funds.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has allready started working on this project.
