The Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA) is delighted to announce the arrival and deployment of Mobi-Mats on Pensacola Beach.
Mobi-Mat is a portable rollout, non-slip matting that is temporarily or permanently laid down on the ground to provide non-slip and traffic resistant access for all wheelchairs, strollers, and pedestrians on sand, grass, or other soft and unstable surfaces.
Funded by the SRIA and deployed by Escambia County Public Works, the mats will be located on 5 beaches along the island:
· Casino Beach
· Park West North Beach
· Moms Beach
· Boardwalk Beach
· Baby Beach
An additional feature will be found at Casino Beach and Moms Beach: a Mobi-Chair, which is an amphibious wheelchair that will provide the user to access the Gulf or the Sound when conditions allow its safe use.
A ribbon cutting of the Casino Beach Mobi-Mat will be held on Friday, June 28 at 10 a.m. on Pensacola Beach.
