Renewal for Storm Battered Marginal Way

York County Coast Star published a great article about the damage done by the March nor’easter and progress and plans to finish repairing that damage.

OGUNQUIT – The series of March Nor’easters that pummeled the Maine coastline caused nearly half a million dollars in damage to the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, shifting and eroding rocks, tearing apart sections of the path, and damaging plantings.

The first one hit March 1, and battered the Seacoast for three days, causing severe damage, according to Marginal Way Preservation Fund Executive Director Jeanne Roche.
