Expect to see construction crews at work over the next 10 days at Jamestown Beach Event Park, James City County Parks and Recreation says.

Crews will be installing a drainage system to combat storm-water erosion at the park as well as improving the park’s walkway to make it more accessible for those with disabilities, according to the James City County website.

The walkway between the parking lot and the concession and restroom building, including the drop-off loop, will be closed during construction. Visitors who need handicapped parking will be able to use the park’s emergency and service entrance near the security building. Visitors must to check in at the attendant booth at the new entrance.

The concessions facility will be closed Monday and Tuesday; however, the closing schedule could change depending on the weather. Two portable toilets — one standard and one wheelchair-accessible — will be available to visitors during construction.

The beachfront and paddle-craft launch area will remain open.
