Haverhill Local Protection Project up for Comment
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, has prepared a Finding of No Significant Impact, and is reviewing plans to allow the construction of a 600-foot long boardwalk on the Haverhill Local Protection Project.
The 600-foot section will extend from the proposed Harbor Place Development to an existing boardwalk behind Haverhill Bank. The boardwalk is proposed to be 16 feet wide and will be partially constructed on the floodwall which will support the boardwalk’s southern edge and will be further supported by columns along the boardwalk’s northern edge.
Once completed, this section will be part of an approximately 1,200-foot long continuous section of boardwalk located directly along the northern bank of the Merrimack River at Wall Street.
Public comments on the Corps review and environmental documents can be submitted by January 15, 2016.
