Temporary repairs are scheduled to begin Monday, April 16, on the 27th Avenue beach ramp in New Smyrna Beach to repair damage caused by erosion.
The ramp will be closed during construction, which is expected to last no more than 10 days. Beachgoers are urged to use the 3rd Avenue ramp. Annual pass holders may use Crawford Road.
Beachgoers may still access the city’s parking lot at 27th Avenue Park by way of East 28th Avenue. Pedestrian access to the beach will remain open through the existing park access. A small portion of the beach near the ramp will be cordoned off to protect the public from construction debris.
A larger repair project for the beach ramp is planned during the 2018-2019 off-season.
