Delaware state officials broke ground for the Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve Boardwalk along Slaughter Beach.
WBOC reports that currently there are wooden pallets that provide a pathway for people that only go a few feet into the marsh.
The boardwalk will be Y-shaped with a total of around 345 feet.
Governor John Carney said that this will provide a scenic overlook for tourists to view the landscape and diverse wildlife.
The project costs more than $400-thousand and should be completed by the Spring or Summer of next year.
