Crews continue to work on a section of boardwalk that connects Seaside Heights to Seaside Park. Back in September, a massive blaze destroyed five blocks of the boardwalk and some 50 businesses that were still recovering after Sandy.

Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers told News 12 that they hoped the boardwalk would be entirely open by this weekend. However, they want to get it done right and aim to have it reopened for July 4 weekend.

According to Akers, yesterday was a fantastic start to the Memorial Day weekend with a strong attendance. With todays weather forecast calling for sunshine and warm temperatures, he hopes to see that trend continue.

How were the roads over Memorial Day weekend?

Not as bad as I expected. Brutal as always. Played it safe and stayed home.
