MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- The beach is a favorite for folks looking to cool off. But our shoreline was pummeled during Superstorm Sandy and those areas are still recovering.
Boardwalks at many area beaches are just as common as water and sand.
"I love the boardwalk. I love walking along there, all along the whole thing they got set up there," said Maria Warner.
Maria Warner and her husband have been coming to Silver Sands in Milford for decades. But this year, the beach isn't quite the same after Superstorm Sandy
A video shot in November, a month after the hurricane, shows the homes destroyed, the boardwalk broken in bits.
"I've been here my whole life, we've maybe got one or two hurricanes that really caused damage," said Willie Warner, Beach visitor.
Tuesday, portions of the boardwalk are open, but a large part still is closed.
"You have to stop and you can't enjoy the scenery," said Justin Bachman, Milford resident.
"Sand everywhere, erosion, everything was tore up," said Terri Bachman, Milford resident. "It was sad to see that."
News 8 called the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection several times for information on the boardwalk reconstruction. No one with knowledge of the project answered our questions.
"There's no reason for it, it's probably a two hour job to fix it, make it last two years," said Warner.
No word at this point as to when the boardwalk will be back open. The only information on the state's website is a message asking visitors to avoid portions of the boardwalk until further notice.
