Ft. Pickens Road to Reopen April '09

The Pensacola Newsletter is reporting that the new deadline for rebuilding the road to Ft. Pickens is "early April" 2009. The road was torn up by Hurricane Ivan (2004) and portions still remain under three feet of sand.

In the meantime, there is a shuttle on weekends (call 698-7492) and two water taxis (Blue Marlin Water Taxi, 723-4907 and Key Sailing, 932-5520).

Some sections of the Ft. Pickens complex will remain closed to the public as road reconstruction proceeds, for safety reasons. For up-to-date information call the U.S. Park Service's Gulf Islands National eashore Information Center at 850-934-2600.
