Eagle Paving of Toms River Hired For Seaside Boardwalk Cleanup

Almost a month after a massive fire destroyed part of the Seaside Boardwalk, Seaside Park and Seaside Heights agree on a contract with a Toms River paving company to clean up the war zone like area.

Michael Loundy, Director of Community Improvements for Seaside Heights, says Eagle Paving Corp. should complete demolition and cleanup at the disaster site within 60 days.

Loundy says Seaside Heights also plans to rebuild the Boardwalk at both Dupont and Lincoln Avenues within the same 60 day period.

The Asbury Park Press reports the boroughs are paying the South Toms River company  $4.7 million for the cleanup project.  Eagle Paving is run by Bill Majors, who also runs FunTown Pier, the amusement pier that was destroyed in superstorm Sandy and lost what was left in the fire.

The boroughs received $2.5 million out of the Superstorm Sandy fund in the state Economic Development Authority’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program to help pay for the fire-related debris removal.
