The parking lot and a lifeguard station at Queensland Beach will be restored to the condition they were before post-tropical storm Noel blew through the area in the fall. A tender was issued today, May 30, for work that includes removing debris and excess material deposited in the parking lot during the storm. The parking lot will also be gravelled with appropriate material and graded. In addition, excess material will be removed and damages to a lifeguard station will be repaired. Some of the rock and other material that is being removed will be placed along sections of guardrail that separates the parking lot from the road. This will further define the parking lot and will provide added separation from the highway. The work is the Department of Natural Resources’ responsibility in restoring the area to its pre-storm status. Parking lot and lifeguard station repairs are expected to be completed by June 20.
