Sandwich Boardwalk Torn Apart by Weekend Storm

SANDWICH – The iconic boardwalk in Sandwich was torn apart during the winter storm that hit the Cape and Islands region this past weekend.

Photos on social media showed the battered boardwalk with missing, damaged, and warped lumber. The area was hit by heavy snow and strong winds for sustained periods on Saturday.

Plans to reconstruct the boardwalk had been announced by town officials–a movement that was not without controversy.

The boardwalk was originally built back in 1875, and last underwent major renovations in 1992 following Hurricane Bob and its impact.
