The Walton County TDC’s Beach Operations Department will begin renovation work on 10 of its Neighborhood Beach Accesses in the Seagrove Beach and Seacrest Beach communities beginning the week of Jan. 28. Work will include new deck boards, new handrails, and new structural components as needed. 

Renovations will be completed in phases in effort to minimize access closure to any particular beach area where projects are scheduled. Work on each phase is expected to take approximately 30 days each and are scheduled for beach accesses that are determined to have reached the end of their service life due to normal wear and tear.

Neighborhood Beach Accesses to be renovated or replaced include:

  • Holly Street (renovation completed 3/8)
  • Azalea/ Camellia Street (renovation)
  • Gardenia Street (renovation)
  • Pelayo Ave. (renovation)
  • Ramsgate (complete replacement)
