Current Road Closures

All park roads are currently open, except for:

  • Old Tocaloma/Platform Bridge Closure - As of January 13, 2020, the bridge known as the Old Tocaloma/Platform Bridge, which runs parallel to Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at its intersection with Platform Bridge Road ~2 miles east of Olema, is closed to all vehicular traffic until further notice. The bridge is being closed to vehicular traffic due to structural deficiencies that make the weight of a vehicle unsafe to cross over the bridge.

Planned Road Closures

Sir Francis Drake Boulevard was closed in both directions to the public on Thursday, October 10, 2019, beyond the Pierce Point Road junction in order for Marin County to create a temporary fix at the East Schooner Creek crossing on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, where water has been inundating the road.

A long term repair for this location, being managed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), for the County of Marin is being put out for bid during the fall of 2019. This project will rehabilitate Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between the Pierce Point Road and Chimney Rock Road intersections.

An additional FHWA project, bundled with Sir Francis Drake Boulevard project, will repair Limantour, Chimney Rock, and Lighthouse Roads, as well as address pavement preservation on all remaining National Park Service-owned paved roads and parking lots within the Seashore.

More information about these projects will be provided here as it becomes available.

Winter Shuttle Bus System Road Closures

Beginning Saturday, December 28, 2019, the western end of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard may be closed on weekends and federal holidays when the Winter Shuttle Bus System is operating.

Potential Closures due to Storm Damage

After wind and/or rain storms, many roads to and from and within Point Reyes National Seashore may be blocked due to flooding, mud slides, downed trees, and/or power lines. Reports of closures and re-openings of roads are received too frequently to keep this page up-to-date. For emergency road and weather conditions in West Marin, visit Point Reyes National Seashore's Twitter feed, the National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area's Twitter feed, the Marin County Department of Public Works' Twitter feed, the Marin Sheriff Department's Twitter feed, the Marin Fire Department's Twitter feed, the California Highway Patrol: Marin's Twitter feed, or tune in to KWMR, 90.5 FM.
