Wheelchair-accessible beach mats coming to Dauphin Island


DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (WKRG) — The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program announced it’s working on making the west end of Dauphin Island more accessible.

The program’s Facebook page says the grand opening of the mats is set for this next week.
