ONE WINTER INSTEAD OF TWO! The Townsend’s Inlet Bridge roadway project will last just one winter instead of two, as originally expected. A meeting between Avalon Business Administrator Scott Wahl, Avalon Police Sgt. John Roscoe, Cape May County Engineer Dale Foster, Sea Isle City Mayor Len Desiderio and other officials led to the change. During the project, slated to begin in November, one lane of alternating traffic will be maintained when possible, with the majority of work expected to be done by Presidents Day weekend, with the rest completed by March 15, 2016.
AN 1889 PAINTING was donated to the Avalon History Center by Dee Phillips. The piece was painted by Joseph Wells, a founder of the Seven Mile Beach Development Company, and shows the north end of the island including the Avalon Hotel. The Avalon Historical Society will fund a restoration of the painting to reverse deterioration and protect it for the future; the cost may exceed $7,000.
