Portsmouth to reopen third section of revamped seawall Feb. 11


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Portsmouth appears set to unfurl the rest of its revamped seawall next week.

City officials will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Feb. 11, where a “SeaWalk” will also be held to mark the reopening the seawall.

Officials told 10 On Your Side last month the third phase of a multimillion-dollar project to renovate the wall was nearly complete. 

The city deemed the wall unsafe in 2015 and decided to replace it in sections after an underwater investigation revealed structural deficiencies. The third phase of the project cost $8.5 million.

The ribbon-cutting is set for 5 p.m. on Feb. 11. Look for more coverage on the ceremony next week.
