Demolition on the fire ravaged boardwalk in Seaside Heights and Seaside Park could begin next week. As officials work to get the project up and running, local contractors are already vying for the job.

About a dozen demolition contractors toured the four blocks of the boardwalk in Seaside Heights and Seaside Park that were damaged in the September 12 inferno.

“We want to get in on helping to restore the shore and maybe give a good bid for the job so we can help out,” Bryan Wallace of Anchor Contracting Group said.

The contractors have until 4 p.m. on Wednesday to submit their bids. The company with the lowest bid will get the job of taking down and clearing away the burned buildings and debris.

Officials hope to issue a demolition contract on Friday and then start the state-funded demolition work early next week. The timeline for the demolition is 60 days.

During the demolition project, what’s left of the damaged buildings will come down first before any debris is removed.

“There’s a lot of pressure to get this done right away,” said John Camera, the Seaside Heights Borough Administrator. “Nobody likes the way it looks.”
