Officials say plans are being made to repair cracks on the “Boardwalk Empire” facade on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that some cracks have appeared there in the past few weeks, emerging in the vinyl along the edges of the facade’s panels.

But officials say the problem should be corrected “in the very near future.”

The 180-foot facade, located in front of Boardwalk Hall near Florida Avenue, was erected in July. It has white spots where the vinyl cracked, but the majority of the mural is still visible and unblemished.

The facade, which shows images of the city’s 1920s-era storefronts similar to those seen on the HBO television series, was paid for through private donations.
