Beachwalk for Seacrest Beach is open!
I second those thanks!!! :clap_1:
The Board of County Commissioners dealt with ongoing beach issues at the July 26 meeting.
The board approved the repair of 21 of the 56 beach accesses destroyed during Hurricane Dennis, which made landfall July10.
?We need to get 20 boardwalks up to get visitors to the beach,? Titus said.
Titus explained the necessity of the repairs was due to a large number of properties that cannot be rented without beach access. Titus estimated the repairs will cost the county approximately $400,000.
Commissioner Cindy Meadows suggested sand as an alternative measure, considering the walkovers are damaged in every storm.
?To put compatible sand down is way, way expensive,? Titus responded.
Titus said the TDC would investigate alternative boardwalk technology for the future.
How much does a simple private (as opposed to the more substantial public access) beach walkover cost to build?
My neighbor replaced their simple stairway to the beach after Ivan to the tune of 16 thousand dollars. House next to theirs was 14 thousand. My Sister in Sand Cliffs subdivision paid even more. We were lucky as only the last section of our walkway needed to be replaced and it was around two thousand. Not so simple is it?
Wow! I can't believe they're that expensive.
Nice picture. That is Mr. and Mrs. Paddlin under the two green and white beach umbrellas. The water is just incredilble right now. It is as clear as I have ever seen it. Some visitors have added wood to the path to the sand.
My family is coming down next Saturday from the Belleville area and we are staying at the dunes of seagrove. According to Resort Quest - beach access and beach service is operating at 100%.
Any info on access across from Andalusia? If not open, any time known to re-open?
Thank you for all of this information....
Does anyone have any information on what acceses made the top 21 list and also an update as to which accesses are now complete?
I haven't seen a list but will look for one.
The official list of open accesses are in the first post of this thread and kept updated. Things are moving slowly, however there are more accesses than shown on the first post, just not rebuilt.
My family and Inlaws will be coming down to on Sunday (8-7-05) . We are staying at Blue Mountian Beach...We've never stayed there before. What is the current condition of beach access & the Blue Mountain Beach area in general?
Open Beach Access Points as of 7/22/05:
? Dune Allen Regional Access: Located on 30-A; west of Oyster Lake at Fort Panick Rd.
? Ed Walline Regional Access: Located at the intersection of Hwy. 30-A and County Rd. 393.
? Grayton Beach Regional Access: Located at the end of DeFuniak Street in Grayton Beach.
? Inlet Access: Located at the end of Lakeshore Drive, one block east of Orange St.
? Walton Dunes: Located at the end of Beach Front Trail east of Eastern Lake adjacent
to Dunes of Seagrove.
? Sugar Dunes: Off of Sanroy Rd., east of Eastern Lake in Lakewood Community.
? Area east of Pompano Joe?s off Scenic Gulf Drive.
? Area east of Whale?s Tail off Scenic Gulf Drive.
So can I assume that this means there is no access in Blue Mountain? I don't know the area that well.
There is walk down access at the main access on hwy 83. there is a lot of construction and equipment there though. There are a few others nearby that are an easy drive or bike ride.
The public access to the beach is open by Mistral in Seacrest.
Any new access rebuilt in Seagrove in the area close to One Seagrove Place or in the Seagrove area in general?
Temporary steps have been erected at One Seagrove. Check out this thread:

Can anyone tell me if the beach access at Beachside Condos has been rebuilt yet, or is at least in the process of rebuilding?
