OCT. 12 UPDATE
Most beach access crossings have been reopened, and city staff will continue to work throughout this week to remove debris from the beach following last week's stormy weather. Four beach crossings remain closed:
- all three at Maryland Avenue
- Pennsylvania Avenue
Please use caution when accessing the beach. Some crossings, particularly those at Grenoble and in front of the Henlopen, are steep with loose sand.
OCT. 5 UPDATE
All beach access points from Rehoboth Avenue south are open. Dune crossings from Baltimore Avenue north to Pennsylvania Avenue remain closed. If you're on the beach, please avoid debris, which may have sharp points and wire. The city has begun removing the debris from the beach, but it's likely to require several days.
ORIGINAL OCT 3 ANNOUNCEMENT
The high surf, caused by ongoing weather conditions and combined with high tides, has resulted in erosion at several Rehoboth Beach dune crossings, similar to that experienced during the Mother’s Day storm earlier this year. For public safety, the city is closing beach access/dune crossings from Surfside Place to Brooklyn Avenue.
