Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk Damaged by Snow Plow

Posted:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - The city of Rehoboth Beach is planning to repair damage to the boardwalk after a snow plow scraped hundreds of boards.

According to City Commissioner Stan Mills, there is not a timeline yet to replace the boards, but the city plans to repair them as soon as possible.

To prepare for last weekend's Lewes Polar Bear Plunge, a city official used a snow plow to clear the boardwalk. However, this had not been done before, and caused significant damage to the wood.

"I guess the point is we need to review our policy and make sure that we do no harm," Mills said. "We want to make sure that we can do our best and present our best face forward on the boardwalk."

Thomas Coffren manages the Candy Kitchen on the boardwalk and hopes once construction starts on the boardwalk it doesn't affect his business.

"A lot of our business is just based on tourism so all the foot traffic that we have is pretty critical to overall sales," he said.

Joan Decandia and her husband walk up and down the boardwalk as often as they can, and like to see it well-maintained. She said she does not think blocking off an area for repairs will cause any problems.

"When they're fixing it it'll be fine," Decandia explained. "While they're doing it we'll just walk around it."

But one part-time resident, a man named Charles, thinks if they do the construction all at once, it will be a nuisance.

"This is the best time of year and it would really interfere with my sense of well-being," he said. "I don't mind if they have to repair it, I don't see why they can't repair it a few lanes at a time and still leave an open passage."

According to Mills, there is not an official plan yet for how the boards will be repaired, but he insisted that it will be completed in time for summer.
