Drive On Beaches Still Closed to Vehicles
The beaches are flat and in some spots super saturated with water making driving hazardous. The debris on some drive on accesses is heavy and others are unscathed. Parks has to evaluate the crossings and also the beaches. In Cape Henlopen whole dunes are gone and you could drive to the marsh. Parks may have to put up some fences to prevent that. We will keep you posted. I am working on organizing some beach clean ups throughout the weekend and in the late afternoon next next week. I will keep you posted as soon as parks gets back in touch and lets me know what is going on. Walk on beaches at main bathhouses are open. Be careful come crossings are a bit hazardous. The parking lots at the drive ons were still closed this morning in DSSP. Beach Plum Island parking lot is open, so is Gordons Pond, Tower beach, South and North side at the Inlet, and Fenwick Island State Park.
