Coastal to Design Weymouth Beach Connection

The Town of Weymouth has selected Coastal Engineering Co. to design and permit a fully-accessible pedestrian walkway between two public beaches.

Weymouth Beach Connection Thumb

Situated along the Weymouth Fore River, Wessagusset Beach and George Lane Beach are separated by 2,000 feet of rocky coastline that is inaccessible and abuts a steep, heavily vegetated coastal bank. The new boardwalk construction project, financed by the Seaport Economic Council Program grant, aims to increase accessible open space at Weymouth’s beaches while enhancing opportunities for passive recreation along the town’s waterfront. Other project considerations include parking, erosion, stability of existing revetment/shorefront structures, storm drainage, and interpretive signage at the site.
