As a result of severe storms in February 1998, sections of Limantour Road at Point Reyes National Seashore were severely impacted and undermined. Funds have now become available from the Federal Highways Administration to begin the repair of the road. On Thursday, August 20, road construction will begin with minor traffic delays between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday until Labor Day weekend. The road will remain open on weekends and holidays with one lane of traffic monitored by a traffic light.

After September 8, Limantour Road will be closed to the public for construction from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The road will remain open on weekends and holidays, and before 8:00 am and after 5:00 pm on weekdays. Traffic lights will be in place and visitors are asked to use caution while driving along Limantour Road during the construction period.

Point Reyes National Seashore offers over 140 miles of hiking trails and over 80 miles of scenic coastline. Drakes Beach offers outstanding beach access and has a visitor center and cafe. Point Reyes Beaches North and South is a 12-mile stretch of beach with some access for dogs on leash. Please check at the visitor centers for more detailed information. Park visitors are encouraged to utilize any of these areas within the seashore during this construction period.
