Shore Front Parkway Will Be Repaved
- from Beach 73rd Street to Beach 108th Street - as early as next week. The repaving will help to alleviate dangerous road conditions exacerbated by Superstorm Sandy.
Ulrich submitted the request to the DOT in the months following Superstorm Sandy, but was told that the project would be put on hold until after the new boardwalk was complete to avoid heavy vehicle congestion.
“This has been a long time coming,” Councilman Ulrich said. “We’ve been working with DOT on this project since after Sandy. When I toured the area with DOT Commissioner Nicole Garcia and her Deputy Al Silvestri last year, I urged them to make Shore Front a top priority. I applaud DOT for making good on their promise to find funding for and begin this much needed project.”
Ulrich hosted a town hall with DOT last fall, where members of the community were invited to discuss plans for improved crossings and parking issues along Shore Front Parkway. The majority of attendees expressed the need to repave Shore Front Parkway.
Weather permitting, work is expected to begin the week of April 3.
