Phase I of the Rambler Road Rehabilitation Project in the Borough of Wildwood Crest is set to begin in mid to late November, according to Van Note-Harvey Associates, the borough’s engineering firm. The project in its totality includes extensive building and site upgrades on borough-owned land on the east side of Ocean Avenue from Rambler Road north to Lotus Road.
Phase I of the project, which consists of building improvements, includes the demolition of the existing bike rental building along Rambler Road, the construction of a new, larger bike rental building that will include public restrooms and the renovation of the existing Gazebo-by-the-Sea structure.
Bids for Phase II of the project, which will include all site improvements, are due to the borough by Nov. 1. Phase II of the project includes replacement and widening of the beachfront bike path between Rambler and Lotus roads; construction of a decorative concrete bike turnaround at Rambler Road; demolition and site cleaning of all existing pavement, vegetation, trees, brick pavers and playground; creation of ADA compliant access to the Gazebo and reconstruction of the entire site around the gazebo; installation of new irrigation systems, landscaping, lighting and a new electric system; reconstruction of curbs and concrete sidewalks along Rambler Road from Ocean Avenue to the Nesbitt Information Center; and grading, irrigation, topsoil and grass fields between Primrose and Lotus roads.
