Section of Cliff Walk Closed

A roughly 20-foot section of Newport's Cliff Walk just south of 40 Steps suffered a catostrophic failure early Thursday afternoon. 

Please be advised that as a result, the portion of the Cliff Walk between Narragansett Avenue and Webster Street will be closed for the foreseeable future. Visitors to the Cliff Walk are asked to follow detour signs and to not attempt to enter the restricted area.
