Half of Navarre Beach Road To Open May 9


The eastern half of Highway 399 linking Navarre Beach to Opal Beach will reopen May 9, according to the Daily News of Fort Walton Beach. Gulf Islands Park superintendent Jerry Eubanks says "it's not the new, first-class road some people might expect."

Work continues on the western half of the water front road that leads to Pensacola Beach. Eubanks is predicting that stretch of highway "could be" reopened by summer.

Repairs to the Opal Beach picnic and swimming facility, midway between Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach, are not yet finished. Port-a-potties will be in place, however, along with a few picnic tables.

The highway and popular Opal Beach facility were devastated by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

The beaches are truly beautiful and the media did more damage showing the beaches worse than they were, not to say it is was the worst oil spill in history.
