Bluff City Restores Boardwalk & Pavilion
Summer in Bluff City will soon feature a restored boardwalk and pavilion thanks to over 360-thousand dollars of improvements. The project will restore the shoreline along the boardwalk and protect from erosion from the waves. The old retaining wall that was built with railroad ties was actually sliding down the hill and the parking lot was not draining water as it should. Work crews have been rebuilding that wall and repaving the parking lot to offer visitors a new traffic pattern where they can enter through one side and exit through the other. The repairs to the shoreline and the boardwalk have restored nearly five feet of shoreline and stabilized the boardwalk making it more enjoyable for walking, fishing and have picnics at the pavilion. City Manager Judy Dulaney says they are about 90-percent complete but final upgrades will take place in the fall when water levels are lower. She plans to ask the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for more money to add fencing around the park. (bg)
