Both Port Tack bridges are scheduled for replacement. This work will also include Port Tack drainage, plus paving and pathway installation from the intersection of Mooring Buoy to Full Sweep.
To accommodate bridgework, the PDPOA will start lowering the lagoon on Sunday, October 27. Our goal is to have the lagoon at its lowest on Tuesday morning and bring water back in on Wednesday morning.
On October 28, we’re planning to install turbidity barriers at the Port Tack West Bridge near Full Sweep, at which time the waterway under the bridge will be closed to all boat traffic for the duration of the project.

*Bridge replacement schedule/dates subject to change.
During the demolition and reconstruction of the Port Tack bridges, including associated roadway, pathway, drainage and utility work, the bridges will be closed to all traffic – vehicle, bicycle, pedestrian, and boat. If you live north of the Port Tack bridges, you will not have access to the full lagoon system. During this time owners and guests will need to alter their travel routes. This project will include drainage, paving and pathway work on Port Tack from the intersection of Mooring Buoy to Full Sweep. We’re also planning to replace the storm water pipes on Lookout and resurface the road. Please email Ben Brown at email@example.com with questions.
Accessing the Beach
