hand with screwdriver pointing to rotting woodWhy do we need to reconstruct the boardwalk now?  Sandwich Town Meeting evaluated this need in 2018 and directed the Town to reconstruct the Boardwalk with a storm resilient design. 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.
