Rockaway boardwalk repairs begin
From the Daily News:
With the start of beach season just two weeks away, workers are busy repairing storm-ravaged sections of the boardwalk in Rockaway.
The damage dates back to August when Hurricane Irene blew through the Rockaways, tearing away planks of the wooden walkway and ripping apart adjacent park fencing.
The powerful storm surge pushed out fascia boards that run under the boardwalk, allowing water and sand to pour out into Shore Front Parkway.
The $3.8 million rebuilding project will continue through the start of the season, said Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski.
