New Hampshire Boardwalk Repairs May be $2.5 Million

September 3, 2008

It may cost $2.5 million to repair about 1,000 feet of boardwalk in Weirs Beach, New Hampshire, which was damaged by a storm last month.

Laconia City Manager Eileen Cabanel said heavy rain flooded the area, tearing up railroad ties and a 50-foot section of boardwalk. She said the damage isn’t covered by insurance.

A state rail line leased to the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad was repaired in time for Labor Day weekend.

Cabanel said the city hopes to get help paying for the boardwalk repairs from the federal government.
