Reed Marks Completion of Restoration Project at Narragansett Fishing Area

11/03/2017 — 

Senator Reed joined the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and others at a special ceremony to mark the completion of a $8.7 million restoration project at the Camp Cronin Fishing Area in Narragansett.  In 2012, Superstorm Sandy caused extensive damage to the area surrounding Camp Cronin and washed out a portion of the access road that runs from Ocean Road to the jetty.  The breakwater repair project was performed by DEM in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and included construction of a 70-foot wide, 480-foot long hybrid stone revetment to stabilize the shoreline and restore safe public access to the fishing area.  The project also included repairs to the adjacent East Shore Arm Breakwater of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge.
