Neighborhood Beach Access Renovations
The Walton County TDC’s Beach Operations Department will begin renovation work on nine of its Beach Accesses this fall and winter, including four Regional Beach Access points and five Neighborhood Beach Access points. The construction bid for these projects opened on September 10th, with work resuming after sea turtle nesting season.
Developments to these locations will include improvements or replacement of decking and railing, addition of bike racks, or if needed, a complete rebuild of the access point to ensure the best quality for our visitors and locals for years to come.
Renovations will be completed in phases in effort to minimize access closure to any particular beach area where projects are scheduled. No more than two beach access points will be under construction at a given time, allowing both locals and visitors to access within their neighborhood.
- The four regional beach access points include (1) Inlet Beach, (2) Gulfview Heights, (3) Ed Walline, and (4) Fort Panic (formally known as “Dune Allen Regional Beach Access”).
- The five neighborhood beach access points include (1) Highway 395, (2) Nightcap Street, (3) Hickory, (4) Live Oak, and (5) Dogwood Street. All five of these neighborhood beach accesses are located in the Seagrove beach neighborhood.
