The shallow water depth in Little Lagoon Pass has triggered the standing Court Order requiring the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) to prepare and begin dredging to allow the exchange of water from Little Lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico.IMG_0559

We are all very aware of the high usage of this area, both the parking lot and the beach area, and will make every effort to minimize the impact to the public access.

The schedule for the dredge operation is:

  • The gravel parking area will be closed today, Wednesday, May 20, and will open to half capacity tomorrow, Thursday, May 21, once everything has been staged. The paved parking area will remain open.
  • Dredging activities are expected to begin Tuesday, May 26, and will continue until the project is complete which typically requires up to 60 days.
