THANK YOU GLOUCESTER DPW AND HUGE SHOUT OUT TO PHIL CUCURU AND MIKE TARANTINO!

Phil Cucuru

THE NEW FOOTBRIDGE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Phil and Mike have been doing the finish work the past few days and a deep layer of sand was added to the beach end for safety sake. I think it looks super sharp with the diagonal cuts across the pilings.

It’s been a really tough spring for the DPW after the extensive damage caused by back to back nor’easters, but getting the bridge completed before the summer crowds was made a priority. Thanks so much to Phil and Mike for working though the weekend. If you see these guys around town, please tell them how great the footbridge looks!

WORK PROGRESSING ON THE GOOD HARBOR BEACH GUEST STATION WITH MASONS JOHN TRUPIANO AND NOEL MITCHELL

The new guest station at the footbridge end of Good Harbor Beach is progressing right on schedule, with today’s work entailing masonry and setting a granite stone border.

In response to a GMG readers’ recent inquiry, Joe Lucido shared that the shower spigot will be set to a timer, with time set to roughly 5am to 9pm, to take into consideration the early morning surfers and late day beach goers.  

Good Harbor Beach Footbridge Almost Ready for Fun!

Not yet fully functional with still a few wobbly, rotted, and missing boards, but any day now the footbridge will be ready for summer fun. I walked along the marsh edge early this morning and saw a single Great Egret, cormorants, gulls, geese, ducks, robins, and a Mourning Dove. I put my feet in the water and it was numbingly cold, but that didn’t prevent a half dozen paddle boarders from enjoying the foggy frigid surf.
