“Great Lakes Dock & Materials will be doing preparation for concrete work and replacement of the boardwalk,” Schropp said.
He said work on the boardwalk and seawall should be wrapped up by the end of May.
The current seawall along the boardwalk was constructed in 1983 and 1984. Army Corps of Engineers officials said repairs to the wall were necessary because the anchor system that tied it to the land had corroded over time.
Some of these problems became noticeable in the fall of 2009, when there was damage to the then-newly renovated wood boardwalk as a result of the seawall moving.
