Revere Beach now

A $9 million project will reconstruct Revere Beach Boulevard in Revere, relieve flooding problems with better drainage, and create a complete, broad sidewalk along the beach so walkers don't need to step into the road and dodge traffic. It features a major nip and tuck for the roadway -- the elimination of about 250 angled parking spaces that let beachgoers cram into free parking spaces. The project's completion -- expected by late summer -- has been pushed back to the distant spring.
