Then and Now- Niantic Boardwalk

Niantic, CT  November, 2011

This is what the Niantic Boardwalk looked like after Tropical Storm Irene came through back in 2011.  The walkway was primarily a gravel path running along the rocky beach. From this photo, you can't really see the damage.  It got worse after Hurricane Sandy in 2012.  You can see for yourself the improvements made to the original boardwalk below.

Steel piles were driven along the boardwalk to reinforce the now concrete walkway.  It looks very nice now.
