$15M facelift to begin on Gulf Shores beaches

Posted: Updated:

GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - Gulf Shores' public beachfront is getting a makeover.

Phase one of a $15 million revitalization project will begin Nov. 7, with a completion date in late March or April.

WALA-TV (http://bit.ly/2eGQDGc ) reports crews began removing palm trees, sidewalks and other items from the beach Tuesday to make way for contractors to begin work on the Gulf Place Beach Revitalization project.

Gulf Shores spokesman Grant Brown says the project will include improved parking, a public safety building and a revitalized beachfront boardwalk for better pedestrian access to the beach.

The project is part of the city's Vision 2025 plan which was adopted in 2014 for the Gulf Beach District. The goal is to create a safe and accessible destination for families while enhancing the overall beach going experience.
