NARRAGANSET, R.I. (WLNE) — Scarborough State Beach in Narraganset is now closed on weekdays as of Monday.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management said that the beach will only open weekends for the remaining three weeks of summer.

Officials explained that the change was made due to a lack off staffing of beach workers, such as rangers and lifeguards.

The beach will close for the season after Labor Day.
