Company chosen to rebuild Long Beach boardwalk (4/4/13)

LONG BEACH - The Long Beach City Council tonight named the company that will rebuild its iconic boardwalk after it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

The council chose Grace Industries to reconstruct the boardwalk, which had been a centerpiece of the oceanfront community for nearly a century. The project will cost an estimated $44 million.

The contract was awarded to the Plainview-based firm just over 5 months after the storm ravaged Long Beach and the 2.2-mile boardwalk.

A representative from Grace Industries says the company will begin ordering the resilient Brazilian hardwood chosen for the project. He says they expect to have crews out working within 30 days.
