Access to Wrightsville Beach will be limited in some areas on Monday morning as the Army Corps of Engineers and private contractors will conduct coastal mapping on the south end of the island.
The town will close three portions of the beach between 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 16 to reduce the risk of dangers to pedestrians. The Army Corps of Engineers and contractors will use a drone to complete its coastal zone mapping, the town said.
From 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., there will be no access from beach access no. 37, by Crystal Pier, to beach access no. 44 at Jack Parker Boulevard. From 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., there will be no access from access no. 44 to Coast Guard Station Wrightsville Beach. From 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., there will be no access to the beach within 300 feet of either side of the Masonboro Inlet jetties.
