The popular Speedboat Beach in Brockway on the North Shore will be temporarily closed Aug. 19 through the end of the summer season for planned improvements.
Improvements include a new permanent restroom to replace existing portable restrooms and reconstruction of the wooden staircase that provides access to the beach from Harbor Avenue. The wooden stairs will be replaced with a heavy-duty, rustic-style steel stairway that includes a beach overlook.
The beach will be inaccessible to the public during construction. For a list of other local public beaches, visit TheTahoeWeekly.com; click on Summer: Beaches & Parks under the Out & About menu, or at tahoepublicbeaches.org. | placer.ca.gov
