The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is working to revitalize areas of Winthrop Beach to make it safe and user-friendly to its nearby residents. The DCR and McCourt Construction are in their eighth week of actual site work on the beach.
McCourt Construction will continue to move forward with its daily excavation on Winthrop Beach. At this time, an average of 90-100 loads and about 2,000 Cubic Yards are being moved per day.
The removing and resetting of the revetment is all but complete. McCourt is more than halfway done with the installation of the protective dust control fencing on the seawall, beginning at the Beacon Street Rotary and ending at Culter Street. The boat ramp demolition is complete, and McCourt will begin forming and reconstructing the ramp in the coming days.
The proposed casino developer at Suffolk Downs is required to make available an environmental impact notice. It is a lengthy document, 402 pages. Belle Isle Marsh will obviously be affected by this development. The Environmental Notification Form is available here as a PDF document to read and/or download.
