Iconic Wildwood tramcars shortening travel routes because of boardwalk damage

Posted: Updated:

The iconic Wildwood tramcars are shortening their travel routes for the rest of the season because damage was found on the boardwalk.

The yellow tramcars have been running on the boardwalk since 1949.

The cars typically transport passengers between 16th Street in North Wildwood down to Cresse Avenue in Wildwood.

But since the discovery of damaged concrete supports under the boardwalk, the tramcars have been forced to end a few blocks short.

The cars will stop running end of September, and operate up to the Wildwood Convention Center.

Gov. Phil Murphy recently vetoed a bill that would have funded aging infrastructure down the shore.
