Whiskeytown National Recreation Area will experience significant construction delays on Kennedy Memorial Drive from November 17th through December 15th, 2015. The roadbed will be ground, graded, compacted and paved with asphalt. For safety, we ask visitors to limit their speed on the compacted base material to less than 10 mph. We also encourage visitors to use caution when crossing the Whiskeytown Dam since the guard railing will be removed during the project and replaced after the roadway is paved. On November 18th the visitor center will be closed.

Lengthier delays will take place November 30th through December 6th due to paving, weather permitting. Construction delays may last a few hours each day, with portions of the road temporarily closed. We ask visitors to be patient and limit their trips to the Brandy Creek Falls, Brandy Creek beach and marina areas or Paige Bar Road until after the completion of the paving. As a result of this project, Kennedy Memorial Drive will meet modern roadway standards and serve the visitors well into the future.

For additional information, please contact the park Superintendent, Jim Milestone at 530-242-3460.
