Boardwalk Swans

Two swans swim past the Sandwich Boardwalk under a cloud-filled sky. Town officials opened contractor bids this week for replacing the storm-damaged structure.

The town this week received five bids from construction companies vying to build Sandwich’s new boardwalk.

The bids ranged in price from $3.17 million to $4.90 million, and included a “base bid” plus additional amounts—ranging from about $59,000 to $307,000—to use stainless steel mesh infill in the structure’s extensive railings, which is expected to enable better views.
