The state has approved an additional $2 million in funding to repair portions of the Cliff Walk that were damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
Robert B. Power, chairman of the Cliff Walk Commission, said that a wall will be built at the fence between the Cliff Walk and the Miramar estate to stop soil erosion.
A total of $5.1 million has been spent to make repairs to the Cliff Walk since the storm.
In addition to the wall, a 60-foot masonry wall will be built on an a second portion of the Cliff Walk.
The Newport Daily news first reported the new infusion of money.
A call to Power was not immediately returned. We'll post more updates once we get more details.
