The Duxbury Beach off road vehicle corridor will reopen at 8 a.m. on Friday, July 12, with restrictions. Only off road vehicles (ORV) displaying a valid 2013 resident or non-resident over sand Town of Duxbury beach sticker affixed to fron windshields will be allowed access to the front drive-on beach. 

The Duxbury resident pedestrian beach parking lot is available to valid 2013 premitted resident vehicles as they have been since the time of the initial closure on June 7, 2013. All parking in all areas is on a first come, first served basis. 

ORV access is limited up to 500 vehicles parked on the front drive on beach at any given time. Two hundred and fifity resident vehicles and 250 non-resident vehicles are allowed under this restriction.

The Duxbury Harbormaster warned residents to expect delays on all of the Duxbury Beach properties and access routes such as Powder Point Bridge.

"A reduced speed limit of five m.p.h. will be imposed in many areas along the access road," the announcement said Thursday morning. "The Town asks that beach guests please take notice of any regulartory signage and notices associated with the beach to ensure safe and appropriate access to the Duxbury Beach properties."
