Southport Beach in southwestern Fairfield extends about 2,200 feet west from Southport Harbor to Sasco Brook, which marks the Fairfield-Westport town line.
The project involved:
- Constructing a 400-foot-long groin at the western end of the widened beach area. This was completed in 1956.
- Widening about 700 feet of the beach to 100 feet by the direct placement of sand. This was completed in July 1958.
The total cost of the project was $52,900.
