Trex Decking for Boardwalk

Hurricane Sandy sure did a lot of damage along the coast. While surfing the web at my usual news websites I noticed an article about the rebuilding of the boardwalk on Belmar beach. The city decided to reconstruct the boardwalk due to its economic affect that it has on the community. The cool thing is that they chose Trex decking for the entire project. In a ceremony to kick off the build Mayor Doherty said “ the new promenade will have 14,000 Trex boards, and will be built to a much higher standard than the previous boardwalk”. 

Now Trex decking comes in 12, 16 and 20 foot length boards. If they were to use the 12 foot long boards that would equal 168,000 linear feet of Trex decking. That about 10 semi truck loads of decking.
