Project Description

Due to the inability to attain sufficient access agreements from private property owners, the project was revised to be only on city property. The project includes construction of a new educational and interactive boardwalk, expansion of an existing intertidal oyster reef, and restoration of a degraded salt marsh. New sidewalks will connect existing parking access to the boardwalk.
