From Chris Barton at EBRPD:
"Hi Andrew - Our Board approved a construction contract this afternoon. We will be sending out public notification in the next few days but wanted to give you a heads up. Construction may start in August. The beach area should partially re-open by the end of this year(2018). The new parking lot and “open area” will remain a construction zone for the Bay Trail work which will continue into fall of 2019. The beach, new restrooms and overlook will all be accessible during this period."
