Contact: John Dell'Osso, 415-464-5135
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 become available from the Federal Highways Administration to begin the repair of the road.
As of Tuesday, September 8, Limantour Road is 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.
During the construction period, visitors are encouraged to visit other areas of the park. Point Reyes National Seashore offers over 145 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.
