Probably never. If it's the only way they fix the cliffwalk is by going through his property then that is what needs to be done.
    To answer your question, this guy in fact refused to let anyone access his land when repairs and maintenance were needed along cliff walk in 2005.

    Write letters to those two departments crmc and to department of transportation. Put the file number on. The letter and envelope. If they get a ton I mail it will make a difference. There are already attorneys and environmentalists organized so all people can do now is write letters. An injunction will be issued for these plans but Sid has all the other stuff organized really well. Please write letters the one guy posted all the right people to write to in another previous post. Thanks

    does the fact that the jetties are temporary matter? Sure interrupting littoral drift of sand and **** factors in, but the break is rock bottom. Won't it regenerate itself after a couple years after the jetties are removed?

    The problem with this plan is no one knows what will happen as a result. The proper review channels were not activated to evaluate the impacts of this plan and what the alternatives to it are.

    It was approved under an emergency measure. I have yet to hear what the big emergency is.

    I believe the repairs in 2005 were not as extensive, and the contracting company was allowed access at a limited number of properties along a different stretch of cliff walk. The problem is this time around the damaged areas are in different spots than the previous repairs, including a section that has completely collasped.

    I think a major concern is that these "Temporary Jetties" wont be so temporary after the repairs are complete. these jetties are expected to be 200 feet long and 40 feet wide, and their will be four of them. one of the jetties is projected to go right down broadway through the break.Ruggles is also known as a premiere fishing spot and nobody knows how these causeways will effect the wildlife.

    Rhode island is notorious for dragging out construction and/or not completing the job in its entirety in a timely fashion.
