The Long Branch beach entrances that are currently closed due to boardwalk construction are likely to remain that way this summer.
Long Branch Business Administrator Howard Woolley said the pilings that will form the base for the boardwalk's decking have been driven in the area, but that he was not sure when it would arrive.
"We're not sure if we're going to be able to get West End (beaches) open this summer," Woolley said. "That would be a stretch."
The sea wall in the area is still begin constructed as well.
The southernmost beach entrance that is still open is at Cottage Place, but that is expected to close around Aug. 1
The roadway in the West End area is also closed due to the large amount of construction vehicles.
