The new stretch of Atlantic City Boardwalk that opened in the summer will be getting lights and ramps, according to a bid notice this week. Temporary ramp access at the end of the new length of Boardwalk near the Flagship in the Inlet had to be installed after the project opened, without lights or ramps. The boards were added above a new sea wall built by the Army Corps of Engineers as part of a project funded by the federal, state and local governments. The boardwalk was added as part of the sea wall project, but the engineers said the city was responsible for access and lighting. Walters Marine Construction is seeking suppliers and subcontractors for the new project, which will install lights and ramps between Melrose Avenue in the north Inlet and Oriental Avenue in the south Inlet.
Atlantic City, seeking to reduce costs by contracting out some of its waste removal among other municipal services, has a new proposal out that includes changes that came up in a pre-bid meeting with potential contractors. The fact that there was a pre-bid meeting and there were interested parties with questions is probably a good thing for the city (given how well the closed auction for Bader Field went). The changes are incorporated in this document here and mostly focus on requiring the contractor to provide waste containers to apartments and condominiums and defining “bulk waste” in some detail. Bids must be submitted by 11am on Tuesday Oct. 18.
