Recovering from Sandy: Road repairs begin at Rhode Island refuge

March 18,2013 - Construction work has begun at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Rhode Island, to repair road damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The only public road to the refuge was made impassable after the storm closed the refuge in October. The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is rebuilding about 1,500 feet of Sachuest Point Road and providing armor stone to protect the road from further erosion during storm surges with high surf. The Service and the Federal Highway Administration are funding the repairs, which are expected to be completed in May.
