Volusia County’s off-season vehicle beach access ramp schedule will take effect Saturday, November 14.
The ramps at Granada Boulevard, Cardinal Drive, Harvard Drive, Williams Avenue, University Boulevard, Seabreeze Boulevard, International Speedway Boulevard, Silver Beach Avenue, Florida Shores Boulevard, Dunlawton Boulevard, Beach Street, Beachway Avenue, Crawford Road, Flagler Avenue, 3rd Avenue and 27th Avenue will be open daily.
The ramps at Milsap Road, Botefuhr Avenue, and Emilia Avenue will be open only on weekends. All other ramps will remain closed through the off-season.
“As we enter the offseason and temperatures begin to cool down, we see less beach traffic from both visitors and residents,” said Jessica Winterwerp, director of the county’s Coastal Division, which manages the beach access ramps. “This decrease in activity allows us to reduce the number of open vehicle access ramps, which in turn reduces operating costs. We determine closures based on usage rates and ensure that those who want to utilize a vehicle access ramp still have convenient options.”
Depending on the weather, the county may open additional ramps for Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas, and New Years' week for holiday traffic.
The off-season beach ramp schedule is effective through January 31. While some ramps are closed to vehicles, access is always open for pedestrians and bicyclists.
