WILDWOOD CREST — The borough will celebrate $2 million in improvements at Sunset Lake and along the beach block of Rambler Road on Friday.
At 3 p.m., there will be a ribbon-cutting at the new Sunset Lake gazebo near Louisville and New Jersey avenues.
Shoreline stabilization improvements there were 90% funded through a $1.2 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, according to the borough.
Improvements include a fishing pier and kayak launch area and floating dock, an observation pier, an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant gazebo, a drinking fountain and water filling station, bicycle racks and low-level LED lighting along all walkways. The Cape May County Open Space program provided $302,000 toward the project.
No matter what your favorite activity is when it comes to shore towns, there’s a time of day…
A second ribbon-cutting will be held near the beach entrance at Rambler Road at 3:30 p.m.
The project there included ADA upgrades, a safer drop-off area, more visible bicycle lanes, a concrete island at the entrance to the beachfront bike path and more bicycle racks.
The cost of the project at Rambler Road was $220,431, $125,000 of which was covered by a state Department of Community Affairs Small Cities ADA grant, according to the borough.
