New Schedule for Beach Ramps in Volusia County
Volusia County’s Coastal Division has initiated its off-season vehicle beach access ramp schedule. Effective Nov. 26, the ramps at Granada Boulevard, Cardinal Drive, Harvard Drive, Williams Avenue, University Boulevard, Seabreeze Boulevard, International Speedway Boulevard, Silver Beach Avenue, Florida Shores Boulevard, Dunlawton Boulevard, Beach Street, Beachway Avenue, Flagler Avenue, 3rd Avenue and 27th Avenue will be open daily.
Off-Season Schedule in Effect
The ramps at Milsap Road, Emilia Avenue and Crawford Road are open only on weekends. “As the season winds down, fewer tourists and residents frequent the beaches,” said Jessica Winterwerp, director of the county’s Coastal Division, which manages the beach access ramps. “After the peak of the season, we reduce the number of vehicle access ramps to reduce operating costs.
Why the New Schedule?
These strategic ramp closures are based on vehicular access ramps with lower usage rates.” While some ramps are closed to vehicles, access is always open for pedestrians and bicyclists.
