A 1,000-square foot addition to the City of Rehoboth Beach’s Delaware Avenue comfort station has opened. This new section, located on the street side of the facility, adds two accessible family restrooms and seven changing rooms to the facility. Two of the changing rooms are accessible to people with disabilities; both of the family restrooms have baby changing stations and one includes an adult changing table.
“We know that people of all abilities and in all stages of life love to visit Rehoboth Beach,” says Mayor Stan Mills. “We want to welcome and accommodate everyone – and this new addition to the comfort station allows us to do just that. Family restrooms allow for multiple occupants in order to assist one another. The additional changing rooms allow beachgoers to get out of wet, sandy bathing suits and into street clothes, hopefully allowing them to stay more comfortably in Rehoboth longer to enjoy our 300 storefronts and restaurants.”
Kent Construction Co. of Smyrna began work on the Delaware Avenue addition late last year. The $491,000 construction cost is included in the city’s capital improvement budget.
The addition was designed by Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. of Salisbury, who also designed the original facility and is currently designing improvements to the city’s Baltimore Avenue comfort facilities and beach patrol headquarters.
