(Nov. 23, 2018) Ocean City Council voted 5-1 to accept Hercules Fence’s $1.95 million bid to install permanent vehicle barriers on the Boardwalk during its meeting on Monday.
Hercules’ bid, the lowest of four received, was nearly a $1 million under project budget. Councilman John Gehrig was opposed with Council President Lloyd Martin absent.
The second phase of the barricade project, which involved temporary measures last season, includes 26 access points along the Boardwalk and at the inlet parking lot.
The project is scheduled to kick off in December and wrap up prior to Memorial Day.
