Update: Dewey Beach Dune Crossings Cleared; Beach Access Points Reopened
Update: Due to recent storm damage, beach access points in Dewey Beach were temporarily closed this week. Town officials said all dune crossings are now open.
Access points to the beaches in Dewey Beach are closed until further notice due to hazardous conditions caused by the recent storm.
Town officials said Thursday that local crews and state agencies are working to improve the conditions and make the beaches accessible. Erosion was described as ‘severe’ in Dewey Beach earlier this week.
The storm and high tides damaged dune fences and support poles, scattered debris on the beach and led to some steep drop-offs.
