PROVINCETOWN – A storm damaged parking lot at a popular National Seashore beach will be available for the upcoming holiday weekend.

Repair work has been completed on the north parking lot at Herring Cove Beach. The parking lot was severely damaged by storms this winter.

“We are pleased to have the north parking lot open and ready for the 4th of July weekend,” said National Seashore Superintendent George Price. “We know that this parking lot is a local favorite for watching the sunset each evening. I appreciate all the extra effort by [National Park Service] contracting staff and the contractors on site to finish the work for our visitors at the start of the busy summer season,” Price added.

Workers had to remove damaged material, before grading and preparing the new pavement.

The repairs are the latest to the parking lot, which has often been damaged by harsh winter storms. A long-term fix that would elevate the lot by 15 feet and move it back 125 feet is currently in the review stage. Price said they should get at least 50 years out of the new parking lot once it’s constructed.

In Eastham, the Nauset Light Beach stairs destroyed in the winter storms were just recently replaced. Price said an accessible boardwalk that was threatened by erosion has also been fixed.

A project to reconstruct the Province Lands Road delayed by the brutal winter has been completed. The section of the bike trail that was closed for replacement of the bike tunnels under Province Lands Road is also open.
