State Approves $2 Million in Additional Cliff Walk Repairs

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.

Good thing too, especially as it's listed as the "must see" in the entire state by today's Huffington Post.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/25/to-do-in-america_n_4775300.html

Does the state plan on fixing the road and curbing on America's Cup Blvd? First impressions coming into the downtown area are not good. The curbing is in need of repair or replacement. This entrance to the city is run down and very tired looking.

I complained to the city 2 years ago and was told it is being repaired this spring.
