Orange Beach, Alabama (WKRG) — Perdido Pass Park’s boardwalk, or most of it, is scheduled to open Saturday, ironically on the third anniversary of the storm that struck Hurricane Sally.
The sound of rods and reels has been replaced by the sound of power drills along Perdido Pass for about four months as workers repair areas destroyed by Hurricane Sally three years ago.
The boardwalk that runs from the site’s historic marker to the Gulf Restaurant will reopen Saturday after the first phase of the nearly $700,000 project is completed.
The second phase will focus on repairs under the Perdido Pass Bridge, and the third phase will expand the boardwalk to the north of the bridge.
The city of Orange Beach has long prided itself on this area, making it a must-see destination for tourists and locals alike. For most of the past three years, visibility has been limited due to storm damage and safety concerns.
The situation is expected to change once all repairs are completed as scheduled by late November or early December.
