Work to Cleanup Herring Cove North Lot to Impact Beach Traffic

Storm damage at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown

PROVINCETOWN – Work to remove broken asphalt from the Herring Cove Beach North Parking lot in Provincetown will impact beach traffic over the next several weeks.

The damaged parking area is fenced off and the beach in front of that area is temporarily closed while crews are working.

Bicyclists and pedestrians will be detoured around work area and the restroom at the north end of the lot will also be closed for the duration of the work.

The lot was heavily damaged by storms during the winter.

“We realize this is the busiest time of the year and that it is an inconvenience to the public, but we were fortunate to receive this funding and have structured the contract to minimize the amount and duration of the impact,” said Kathy Tevyaw, the interim superintendent of the Cape Cod National Seashore. “This work will be a major benefit to the future relocation of this parking lot as a long-term solution.”

Tevyaw said it is important for visitors to heed the signage and remain outside of the work zone.

Bicyclists will be detoured by signs onto Province Lands Road for about a half-mile around the construction site.

Visitors to the beach arriving by car should also use caution while driving in the area.

Official announcements about the status of the project can be found on the national seashore’s website at, on the park’s Facebook page and on Twitter by following @CapeCodNPS.
