Sandwich Boardwalk Reconstruction: How tall will the Boardwalk be and why?

wooden boardwalks bridge with middle arch and ends covered by water

The deck height will be 4’ to 5’ taller than it is now. The increased height is necessary to permit the structure in tidal area over the salt marsh, to meet storm surge standards & to accommodate a 6’ wide walkway. (An increase of 1’ in width) The Boardwalk has been  designed with bridge profile similar to the arch similar to the arch at Mill Creek today. This arched profile, and the buttress features of the 1bridge were added as a result of community feedback.
