VIDEO: Pilings Installed for New Seaside Boardwalk

Reconstruction work on Seaside Heights' new boardwalk begins with some pile driving.

Construction of Seaside Heights' new boardwalk is underway. Crews are currently installing 25-foot long wooden pilings to help support the new boards.

In all, more than 1,500 pilings are expected to be installed.

The actually process of installing pilings is relatively simple - following the planning, measuring and surveying, that is. A large drill bores deep into the beach while a second heavy machine lowers the pilings into place while its pile driver attachment hammers it into the ground.

About 64 pilings are expected to be installed each day.

Seaside's boardwalk is expected to be rebuilt on or before May 10.
