The canoe and kayak access area at Cypress Creek will be closed starting Tuesday.

That's because of a renovation project that costs $161,157. The City of Florence tried to keep the area open while crews worked, but a series of destructive incidents led to the closure.

This weekend, someone ran over the landscape beds crews were working on. Other incidents include someone running over and breaking a fire hydrant and people pulling into new asphalt.

At this time, the city doesn't know when the renovations will be completed. The city is doing the project, as a city ordinance requires the parking lot to have landscape.
