Erosion from waves that reached heights of up to 11-feet earlier this week has resulted in the exposure of concrete block and other hazards at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Central Avenue Beach. The National Park Service will close Central Avenue Beach and its parking lot on August 4th and 5th so heavy equipment can be used to remove the hazards. The site is expected to reopen at 7:00 a.m. on August 6th.
For more information, call the national lakeshore’s information desk at 219-395-1882 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is part of the National Park Service. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America’s 401 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.
