Posted May 27, 2020

The Alabama Department of Transportation is preparing to begin dredging Little Lagoon. The shallow water depth has triggered a standing Court Order requiring ALDOT to dredge to allow the exchange of water from Little Lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico.

The area will remain open to the public for the entirety of the project. Efforts will be made to minimize the impact to this high usage parking and beach area.

The schedule for the dredge operation is as follows:

- The gravel parking area has been at half capacity beginning May 21. The paved parking area will remain open.

- Dredging activities are expected to begin May 26 and continue until the project is complete which typically requires up to 60 days.
