A dedication ceremony for the Mill Beach Access Project in Brookings has been scheduled to be held at the site at noon on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. Mill Beach access is located at the end of Macklyn Cove Drive, which extends from Mill Beach Road to the beach.
Improvements include paving the roadway to a width of 14 feet, paving two parking areas, and installing a restroom and picnic tables. All facilities are designed to ADA accessible standards and the paved surface will facilitate safer travel to the beach by pedestrians and bicyclists.
Prior to improvements, the access had been limited to use by four-wheelers and adventurous hikers; grading the road made it safer for pedestrians, and usable by a wider range of vehicles.
