The City of Long Beach just announced it will be the first city on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to offer a handicapped access path on one of its beaches.
The Long Beach Wheel Way will be installed between the Jim Simpson Fishing Pier and Steve’s Marina Restaurant. The wheel way will offer a path all the way down to the water.
City officials say the mats have been ordered and crews will work to remove several bumpers in the parking lot before installing the wheel way access.
The project is expected to be complete by August.
