A beach at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is closing for a week for paving work.

The National Park Service says the lakeshore’s West Beach area along the Lake-Porter county line in northwestern Indiana will be closed from Thursday through Nov. 9.

The park service says other beaches — including Portage Lakefront, Porter, Kemil, Dunbar and Lakeview — will remain open during the work.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore stretches along 15 miles of the southern shore of Lake Michigan.
