STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A portion of a Connecticut park severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy nearly four years ago has finally reopened.

The southern point of the seven-acre Kosciuszko Park in Stamford was reopened Monday by Mayor Kevin Martin after a more than $286,000 renovation project. The city got a $120,000 relief award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The project included restoration and re-pavement of about 700 feet of the walking path and reinforcement of the embankment at the waterfront park.

A portion of the path used by walkers and cyclists collapsed into the harbor after strong waves caused erosion during the 2012 storm.

City engineer Lou Casolo tells the Stamford Advocate (https://bit.ly/2a5H12P) the park is now better able to withstand extreme weather.
