The National Park Service is still conducting studies for the environmental assessment for the proposed closure of the northern section of Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park. The closure, slated to end on April 30, 2022, will be extended to September 5, 2022. This extension will ensure that we maintain recreational opportunities this summer, through Labor Day.
The NPS will continue to limit drivers’ access to this section of Beach Drive until a final determination is made.
