Coastal Resilience grant for Duxbury Beach

Duxbury has been awarded a Coastal Resilience grant by the office of Coastal Zone Management’s (CZM). The grants, funded through the Legislature, support local efforts to proactively plan for and reduce coastal storm and climate change impacts, including storm surge, flooding, erosion, and sea level rise.

Duxbury will receive $152,278 for Duxbury beach for nature-based storm-damage protection measures. The Duxbury Beach Reservation will complete permitting for a series of nature-based measures that will provide flood and erosion control and improve the resilience of the barrier beach system. The measures will address vulnerable areas including ocean-facing beaches and dunes, bay side of the barrier beach, Powder Point Bridge abutment and pilings, and low areas of the access road.
