FL - Indian River County beach-restoration project continues; Turtle Trail Beach Access closed

Public beach access at Turtle Trail closed this week as work continues to restore the hurricane-damaged beach dunes.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Public beach access at Turtle Trail closed this week as work continues to restore the hurricane-damaged beach dunes.

Turtle Trail Beach Access, which closed Wednesday, is the latest of the beaches to close after restoration work resumed in November. The work, which began last year, was suspended between April and November because of sea turtle nesting season.

Turtle Trail Beach Access and Seagrape Trail Beach Access, which has been closed since Oct. 29, are expected to remain closed until May 1.
