Speedboat Beach closing

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
