Contact: George E. Price, Jr., Superintendent, 508-957-0701
Superintendent George Price announces that the work to repair the winter storm damage to the north parking lot at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown, will begin today. We expect the project will last 2-3 weeks. During this period we will to maintain 70 parking spaces in the north lot, as well as 400 spaces in the south lot.
The primary contractor for the project is Henry General Contractors, Inc. of Springfield, MA. The subcontractor for removal of the damaged material, grading, and prepping for pavement is Classic Site Solutions, Inc. The subcontractor for paving is Lawrence Lynch Corp. The subcontractor for striping the parking lines is Hartline, Inc.
The contractors will limit activity during the three-day 4th of July holiday weekend.
Price said, "It is unfortunate that it took so long to engage a contractor to undertake the repair work this year, but the good news is that the work is underway and we are confident they will complete the job as soon as possible. We continue to plan for future relocation of this parking lot as a long-term solution."
The other facility location that suffered severe storm damage this winter was Nauset Light Beach in Eastham. An accessible boardwalk was threatened by erosion and had to be removed in the fall and the beach access stairs were washed away. The stairs are now in place and a new accessible ramp has been installed. The beach is open for business.
The extensive winter storms also caused a delay in the completion of the Province Lands Road reconstruction project. The section of road between Race Point Road and the entrance to Herring Cove Beach has been completed and is now open to the public. The sections of the bicycle trail that were closed for replacement of the bike tunnels under Province Lands Road are also open. Further changes or updates will be posted to our website at www.nps.gov/caco.
