CAMBRIDGE, Md.- The boardwalk underneath of Route 50 along the Choptank River in Cambridge connects the fishing pier to the visitors' center, but due to Superstorm Sandy you can no longer get from one side to the other.
Olga Wheatley moved to Cambridge two years ago and every day since she arrived, she and her dog have walked the boardwalk underneath Route 50.
"I normally walk through here, under the bridge to the visitor center and back here," said Wheatley.
But due to Sandy, the boardwalk is in shambles. The boards were ripped off the dock. Wheatley thought it was going to be repaired but has not seen any progress.
"When it just happened I saw people working there, they cleaned everything and closed the way and then since that time nobody has worked there," said Wheatley.
Daryl Butcher of Cambridge said the wind and water surge from Sandy destroyed his own personal dock, and these things take time to fix.
"I think they need to be patient, there is a lot of damage on the waterfront. It takes time and they have priorities and weather is not the best," said Butcher.
Wheatley has had to change her routine and find a different way to walk, but her patience is wearing thin.
"I hope it will be fixed after two weeks," she said. "I am going on vacation and I hope to come back and I hope it will be fixed by that time."
The Dorchester County Public Works said it is going to be at least a month before it knows where the funding will come from to repair the river walk.
