Beach access reopens today

by: Kurt Schultheis Senior Editor

The popular North Shore Road beach access was reopened to the public at 9 a.m. Friday, July 1, just in time for the Fourth of July weekend.

A $4.5 million north-end emergency beach project was completed earlier in the week. The project brought approximately 133,000 cubic yards of sand to the area.

Beachgoers will now be able to access Beer Can Island by foot once again.
