Howland Hill Road Through Park To Close For Annual Maintenance, 2009
Beginning Monday, June 1st, the portion of Howland Hill Road through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park will be closed to all vehicle traffic on week days for annual maintenance of the road. This maintenance work is anticipated to take approximately two weeks and the road work is scheduled to be completed by June 12th or sooner. The road will be open on weekends.
It is necessary to close this narrow, gravel roadway to all public vehicle traffic for visitor safety, protection of the resources and efficiency. Locked gates at each end of the roadway will close the area being worked on. Visitors may enter the area on foot but should use caution especially in the vicinity of equipment. Do not block gates when parking at either end of the road.
