The beams, posts, bracing and metal fasteners have exceeded their useful life. The Boardwalk is deteriorating rapidly and could/has quickly become a safety risk. Storms continue to take a heavy toll on the structure.  The Town continues to inspect and repair the Boardwalk, but it must be replaced. Find more images of the Boardwalk here and find a 2018 conditions report finding the Boardwalk in satisfactory to fair condition here.
