SEASIDE HEIGHTS (PIX11) – The Seaside boardwalk will be ready just in time for Memorial Day weekend, officials have announced.

The town council awarded a more than $3.5 million contract to a Millstone-based company to rebuild the 16-block boardwalk.

As part of the restoration, Seaside will also get a playground on the beach, a special entrance into town and renovations to the community center.

It will be paid for by the funds raised by an MTV fundraiser held last November with the cast of the “Jersey Shore.”
