The ramps at Milsap Road and Emilia Avenue will be open only on weekends.
All other ramps will remain closed.
“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. These strategic ramp closures are based on vehicular access ramps with lower usage rates.”
Dependent upon favorable weather conditions, additional ramps will open up for Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas week, and New Year’s week to accommodate holiday beach visitors.
The off-season beach ramp schedule is effective through January 31.
While some ramps are closed to vehicles, access is always open for pedestrians and bicyclists. For a complete listing of beach access ramps, visit Volusia.org and click on the “Beach Driving and Parking” tab.
