The walkway on the south side of the Rt. 52 bridge is now officially open. You can now walk the distance of the bridge from Ocean City to Somers Point.The barricades that blocked access to the bridge have been removed.

The New Welcome Center should be completed sometime next month. You'll be able to launch kayaks and there will be areas for fishing, boating and watching birds.

This was reported from The Ocean City Gazette.

A Bike Path is also in the planning stages. The Bike Path will connect the north end of the island to the south end, and east to west across Ninth Street. The Bike Path also runs on Simpson Road and Simpson Avenue from Battersea Road to Fifth Street.

Great news and perfect timing to enjoy outdoor activities in Ocean City!
