Monroe County Facilities Maintenance will be making improvements to the restrooms at Clarence S. Higgs Memorial Beach Park located at 100 Atlantic Blvd in Key West. During the upgrades, there will be temporary closures, but portable restrooms and outdoor shower facilities will be available throughout the project. The upgrades are tentatively scheduled in phases, June 3-12 for the men's room and June 12-24 for the women's room. These dates could change for unforeseen conditions.
The improvements include new nonskid flooring to the entire bathroom facility, upgraded marine grade bathroom fixtures, and upgraded lighting. The outdoor shower facility improvements are tentatively scheduled to be updated in August.
“Higgs Beach is one of our gems and a focal point for our community,” Bill Rieck of Facilities, Parks, and Beaches said. “Although we have to temporarily close the bathrooms for a short period to make the improvements, doing this project will enhance the beach and park area for everyone’s future use.”
