Demolished Cedar Ave Ramp Tour
There are tons of projects going on this off-season in order for this year to be amazing!
One of those projects are the reconstruction of the entrance of the boardwalk at Cedar Avenue.
If you remember, back in 2014 the city of Wildwood was awarded $400,000 by the Department of Community Affairs. That money was to be used to create new ADA compliant ramps.
An ADA Ramp requires a 1:12 ramp slope ratio which equals 4.8 degrees slope or one foot of wheelchair ramp for each inch of rise.
With most of the ramps on the boardwalk built back in the 1980s the city knew it would take a while to get all of them to ADA code.
The first phase of ramp replacements started in 2015 and since then the city has been fixing many of the ramps. The next one and current one are the two ramps at Cedar Avenue.
The demolition of the Cedar Avenue ramps started two weeks ago. We decided to give you a tour of what the area currently looks like. You can check out the tour by scrolling to the bottom of this article for the video.
As you can tell from the video it’s been a long time since this part of the boardwalk has been exposed. We are very glad to see the city investing in new ramps!
A side note; I was hoping to see some long forgotten Dracula’s Castle history there but didn’t see any. Do you miss that ride?
