GULF SHORES, ALA. – Culvert repair on State Park Road (formerly known as Hwy. 135) has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 12, 2021 from 7:00 AM through Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 5:00 PM.

State Park Road needs some infrastructure repairs. Some of the culverts have begun to fail causing deep potholes to reappear on a regular basis. It is our goal to replace the culverts to alleviate further damage to the road surface and make your ride through the park a more enjoyable experience.   

Barricades will be placed at two locations – State Park Road (past Woodside Restaurant) and at the intersection at Beach Blvd. Visitors will still be able to enjoy a delicious meal at Woodside Restaurant and access the trails. As an alternate route to using State Park Road, please take Hwy. 59 to East Beach  Blvd. during the closure.
