For the time being, the trackage between Woodbine and Cape May Courthouse will remain in it's current state of disrepair. It is unknown how long the rest will remain this way, but I'd say that once revenue begins rolling in from the freight service, restoration of the rest of the railroad should progress relatively quickly.
Originally, it had been said that the Woodbine bridge over route 550 would be restored, however I'm questioning that now. I haven't seen any work done on that yet personally...and I'm no longer sure how they plan to lay the rails for the new industrial tracks down there. When I was there last, chances began to look pretty good that they would just use the old Woodbine Secondary lead up to Modern Gas, and then just continue into the airport using that same lead, eliminating the need to fix the bridge. I'll be down there on April 24th for this West Jersey chapter event, so we'll see what it looks like then...
