The Town of Kill Devil Hills has announced the Fourth Street Beach Access, located behind Target and near the Jolly Roger, will remain remain closed until further notice due to years of repeated storm damage.
“We recognize the community’s desire to use the Fourth Street Access; however, the town’s top priority is the safety of our citizens. The walkover portion of the access has been deemed unsafe by town staff,” according to a news release.
The town is waiting on the availability of utility locators to inspect the area before the wooden walkover portion of the access can be removed entirely, allowing for safe access to the beach to the public. But it is not yet known when that will happen.
The access will be an open sand access for the near future as the town seeks grant funding for replacement.
