I was getting my kids pumped up, over our soon to be trip and watched some YouTube videos of drones taking footage of construction on the beach. I was wondering if this was still taking place? Has it made the entry into the beach water deeper or it is the same? Has this made the beach sandy area wider before you hit the water or what is the actual purpose? Sorry, I'm an ingorant army brat and never really been beachside except for the few times at Navarre. Thanks for your time- snowman

The beach is incredibly wider now. Look at it this way, your calves will be far toner when you leave.

Yes, the project has been completed and no beaches are closed.
Entry into the water is exactly the same; no steeper, no shallower.
Yes, the beach is much wider now so the distance to the water's edge is quite a bit further...which is a good thing!
Sleep late, drive fast and don't take anything seriously...
