Beverly, MA, Makes Boater-Friendly Improvements
April 21, 2011
Salem News reports that the North Shore city of Beverly’s decades-long effort to improve its waterfront property is finally paying off. The area in question is located at the base of the Beverly-Salem bridge, and consists of a recreational marina, a second marina for commercial fishermen, a public pier and a public park.
Workers have nearly finished $2.5 million worth of improvements to the site, which included repairing or replacing 275 feet of the seawall, replacing the wooden plaza with a concrete deck, and installing a new concrete floating-dock system at the city’s recreational marina to replace the wooden floats and slips.
The old harbormaster’s building was torn down, and the existing marina-management building will now house the harbormaster’s office.
Best of all, the city recently learned that it will receive nearly $1.4 million more from the state to implement Phase 2 of the project.
