If you’re heading to Vilano Beach, here’s a parking note to be aware of:
The southwestern portion of the parking lot at Vilano Landing at 101 Vilano Causeway, is closed due to a dredging project in the Vilano basin. The lot is anticipated to be reopened this winter, according to St. Johns County.
The dredging will remove an estimated 5,700 cubic yards of material from the basin to improve boaters’ access to the Intracoastal Waterway.
The boat ramp will remain open to the public for the duration of the project, but the county is advising boat ramp users to be extra careful in the area.
