Construction has begun on the Cliff Walk restroom project. Narragansett Ave. is closed between Ochre Point Ave. and the Cliff Walk to facilitate the installation of the utilities, a new sidewalk and the restroom building. Pedestrians can access the Cliff Walk through the adjacent Webster Ave entrance. Visitors to the Cliff Walk are encouraged to park at Easton's Beach on Memorial Boulevard.
