The Monmouth County beach town plans to start work next week on the first phase of a boardwalk reconstruction that Mayor Ken Farrell says could cost $1.75 million.

The borough council awarded a $30,000 contract Wednesday night to remove the remnants of the old boardwalk.

The new boardwalk, like the old one, will be made of synthetic planks, with sturdy tie-down straps anchoring them to the foundation.

The first phase of the work, covering part of the 3/4-mile long walkway, should be done by May 6, with the remainder finished by June 23.

All told, Sea Girt expects to have spent about $2.5 million on cleanup and rebuilding costs from the storm.
