This week, staff began removing equipment and fixtures from the South facilities and beach. Contractors are well into the start of demolition which included the complete removal of awning and framing. Members may view progress pictures on the Foundation website by clicking the Members tab and choosing Photo Gallery.
Please be mindful of scheduling and closures found below.
What is closed?
Access to South Beach
Also, no trams will be heading to South Beach during construction.
Berm and North Beach Users:
It is also important to note that berm users may still access the South Berm. However, there will be no access to the Boardwalk. This area will be gated off and used for construction material transport. Members who traverse the South Beach from the North Beach may not come onto the construction site and expect to use the South Boardwalk. Beach walkers must travel back up to North Beach to use the North Boardwalk, restrooms or ride a tram.
For members and guests who normally ride the tram along the South Berm, trams are transporting people to Station 4 at the Commons where members can then transfer to a tram heading to North Beach and Marker 36.
South Parking Lot at Commons:
The south parking lot is closed for member use. This lot is used strictly for Foundation deliveries, construction equipment and vehicles relating to the project. This area will be deemed unsafe to walk or drive through. A gate and signage is posted indicating that this is a construction area.
Hours at Marker 36:
Marker 36 restaurant is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
