The town will soon begin the restoration of the primary dune and the construction of a new handicap-accessible ramp at the end of A Street. The town’s contractors will begin mobilizing during the first week in March, and the project is expected to continue until the beginning of May.
The work involves removing the old concrete ramp, restoring the dune to the heights and the volume of the dune to the immediate north and south, and installing a new up-and-over ramp.
Because the project involves demolition of concrete and pile driving, there may be some disruption of traffic and added noise during construction, particularly during the demolition of the existing structure.
Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. There may be a few occasions when construction could go slightly longer. If any work is necessary on Saturdays, nearby residences will be notified.
The project, which builds on the town’s efforts to increase its resiliency, has received an order of conditions (permit) through the Conservation Commission.
