Crowds at North Beach for Labor Day Despite Flooding, Erosion

It wouldn't be Labor Day for some people without spending it on our area beaches, and although flood in some areas and shut down in others, North Beach was the place to be Monday.

The North Beach area has been dealing with flooding for some time. Coastal erosion has been a major issue, causing some areas of the beach to be shut down after sand ruptured a water main leading to the U.S.S. Lexington's fire lines.

The erosion also caused a section of beach-walk to collapse.

The City is already planning on a $2.5 million replenishment project with help from the Texas General Land Office. That project is set to begin in the next nine-12 months.

In the meantime, those who like to spend time at North Beach will still have access to it.

Repairs to the affected area of the beach are costing taxpayers a little over $120,000.
