Gulf Islands National Seashore has identified funding to repair J. Earl Bowden Highway after wind and water from Hurricane Isaac collapsed several parts of the beach road
Superintendent Dan Brown said repairs are scheduled to be completed by the end of October.
“We have identified federal funding and transferred it to the Florida Department of Transportation,” Brown said. “They are working on the design and we’ll be contracting out the repairs.”
Brown met with FDOT representative on Sept. 7, and the projected time frame is to award the contract within two weeks, and have the repairs done within four weeks after that said Brown.
The road is still cosed to all vehicles.
