South Padre Island crews made improvements to the emergency/maintenance lane on the beach from White Sands street to the Hilton Garden Inn. Crews replaced PVC pipes with landscape timbers and rope and removed the caution tape to make the lane more visible and attractive. The lane was extended at Wanna Wanna and the city relocated the life guard stand to provide more room for access as well as beach visitors. The lane at Saida was temporarily removed due to the large number of Church Visitors this past week and high tides in the area. The city will monitor tides and install it again as soon as they can.
