 Redwood National and State Parks Superintendents Steve Chaney and Jeff Bomke (acting) announced today that the north section of the park’s Coastal Drive from the Newton B. Drury Parkway to the intersection at Alder Camp Road will be closed from Monday, June 8 to Friday, June 26, 2009.

The Coastal Drive will be re-opened for weekend travel between 6:00 pm on Thursday evenings to 6:00 pm Sunday evenings.

The temporary closure is required to provide safe conditions for park
maintenance crews to repair damaged sections of the Coastal Drive.
Many sections of this road are narrow with minimal visibility therefore the potential for an accident is substantial. This project is necessary in preparation for major repairs on Alder Camp Road scheduled later this summer.

Klamath Beach Road, Alder Camp Road and the north section of the Coastal Drive that connects to both of these roads will remain open throughout this project.

For more information on the project contact Lynn Erickson-Levi at (707) 465-7364.

Gray whales migrate just offshore along the California coastline as they travel from Alaska to Baja California; a 10,000-mile round trip journey. The best time to view these 45-foot marine mammals are December/January and March/April. Watch for their spouts that are shaped like a heart.
