I guess there was a certain logic, or at least practicality, to building roads and railroads along the back of the beach. Works okay for the road - as long as you're willing to commit a budget to fixing the seawall, removing logs from the roadway, and cleaning up the mud when the hill comes down. Doesn't work so well for the beach - although technically it's probably still there - the berm and the drift logs 6 feet directly below the westbound lanes of the road.
Cromwell Drive has good company - Dockton Road, Harbor Avenue, Redondo Beach Drive, parts of State Route 106 along the south side of Hood Canal. And of course, the railroad.
