The Town is in the process of burying utilities on K Avenue in the block where the businesses and pier are located and on Atlantic Avenue, in the area of the boardwalk. Electric and telephone poles will be removed and the current streetlights will be replaced with decorative lighting.
Two parking spaces will be removed in the center lane of K Avenue to allow for placement of an above ground transformer. Landscaped areas will be added, the current sidewalks will be torn out and replaced and the road will be resurfaced.
The Town expects to complete the work by the end of February or mid- March depending on the weather. Some businesses are currently closed for renovations, but others are open and the Town will work to have one lane of K Avenue open to traffic during the project. There will be minimal traffic impact on Atlantic Avenue.
