Drakes Beach Road Closure
Drakes Beach Road was reopened on Saturday, June 17, 2017.
In late March of 2017, National Park Service personnel noticed a depression was forming on Drakes Beach Road over a culvert that served as a cattle underpass for the historic D Ranch. After inspecting the culvert, steel plates were placed over the depression.
On the morning of Saturday, April 8, 2017, the culvert failed, resulting in the partial collapse of a section of the road. The steel plates that were installed prior to the collapse no longer have sufficient structural support to bear the weight of an automobile and could fail if driven over.
Park personnel worked to get the road open as soon as it could safely be traveled. Contractors were on site in early June and the road was reopened on Saturday, June 17, 2017.
