SPRING LAKE, N.J., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The ribbon on the Spring Lake, NJ, boardwalk was officially cut by Spring Lake Mayor Jennifer Naughton this morning at Pier Beach. The Mayor, along with Thomas A. Arnone, Freeholder Director and Serena DiMaso, Freeholder Deputy Director both of Monmouth County, presided over the ceremony. Mayor Naughton thanked her DPW crew, headed by Frank Phillips, for bringing the boardwalk to completion ahead of schedule.
Completely destroyed after Hurricane Sandy, the Spring Lake boardwalk was rebuilt using TimberTech, a splinter-free, low-maintenance, composite decking and is now ready for eager beach-goers who traditionally head there in droves during the summer. "TimberTech's Docksider product, specifically designed for docks and boardwalks installed quickly and easily and the crew said they liked the new composite better than the previous composite material," said Bryan W. Dempsey, Borough Administrator.
The boardwalk is a traditional favorite of joggers and, at two miles long and 18 ft. wide, it is the longest non-commercial boardwalk in New Jersey. The town expects more than 10,000 visitors tomorrow for the Spring Lake 5 Mile Run and the first official beach day of the Memorial Day weekend.
The Spring Lake boardwalk and those rebuilt in other shore towns are testaments to the shore's comeback after the devastating storm and offer a beacon of hope to residents and tourists.
