Cleanup to Begin at Damaged Herring Cove Beach Lot

Storm damage at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown

PROVINCETOWN – The Cape Cod National Seashore has brought a contractor into the fold to remove damaged sections of the Herring Cove Beach North Parking Lot.

The company, Henry General Construction, will start work next week. The project is expected to take several weeks to complete.

The lot was extensively damaged this past winter, leaving in large sections of asphalt scattered along the beach. The section of beach in front of the parking area will be closed off while workers clean up the debris.

“We’re fortunate to have received special storm damage funds to hire a contractor to clean up this area,” said Kathy Tevyaw, “We’re anxious to get the debris from the damaged lot off the beach and provide safe passage for bicyclists to connect to the Province Lands Bike Trail.”

The damaged area has been blocked off by fencing and cyclists can walk their bikes past the damage to access the trail.

This marks the latest cleanup effort at the parking lot, which is close to the shore and is often damaged by harsh winter storms.

“We continue to plan for future relocation of this parking lot as a long-term solution,” Tevyaw said. “Any work we can complete this year a down payment on the future project.”
