Date: July 26, 2013

The Headquarters Visitor Center passenger car parking lot, at the 7000 foot elevation in Haleakalā National Park, will close for accessibility improvements starting at 7:30am on Monday, July 29, through Tuesday, August 13. Vehicles remaining in the lot after 7:30am Monday will be ticketed and towed. The restrooms, visitor center, and bus parking will remain open. During heavy traffic, signs at the park entrance station will direct passenger cars to alternative short term parking, restrooms, and an information tent, along the narrow Hosmer Grove Road. Back country camping and cabin permits and general information will be available at this tent.

Accessibility improvements in the summit area of Haleakalā are scheduled through September 2013. The work is occurring during summer because asphalt must be poured and set during the warmest, driest time of year. Visitors and residents should expect continued heavy construction traffic on Haleakalā Highway and Crater Road. For the latest updates please check www.nps.gov/hale or call 572-4400.
