No boating season at Edgewater Marina
Reconstruction still under way after Hurricane Sandy destroyed break wall, docks in Cleveland
by WKSU's GRANT ENGLE

Reporter

In The Region:

The effects of Hurricane Sandy are visible on the east coast nearly four months later, and now Ohio’s boaters are feeling the impact, too.

The Edgewater Marina on Cleveland’s west side will not open this boating season after Sandy’s high winds destroyed the break wall and dock last October.

Contractors started to demolish the break wall almost immediately after the storm, but reconstruction was delayed by winter weather.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman Matt Eiselstein says marina owners learned last month they would not be able to operate this boating season.

“To hurry through the process and get something done that wasn’t up to the standards we’re trying to hit would not have been good for the boaters, would not have been good for the city or not a product ODNR actually wanted to produce.”

Eiselstein says there isn’t a timetable for when construction will be finished, but he says the marina will be open for the 2014 boating season.

FEMA will pay for 75 percent of the rebuild, and Eiselstein says the state will pay the remainder.
