Golden Sands, Wabasso Beach parks to be closed starting Friday

Golden Sands and Wabasso Beach parks will be closed indefinitely starting Friday, Feb. 5 as construction workers prepare two of the staging areas for beach restoration project.The project is slated to begin Monday, Feb. 8 with an average of one dump truck per minute going over the Wabasso Causeway to unload sand at the staging areas. James Gray of County Coastal Engineering, the agency which will be monitoring the project, said Wabasso Beach Park will likely be closed for the duration of the first phase of the project through April 30. There is a chance that parts of Golden Sand Park can be opened, but that won’t be determined until once the project is fully underway.Gray added that two other staging areas at Turtle Trail and Seagrape Trail beaches will also be shutdown, most likely at the end of February.
