Howland Hill to be closed to vehicles

Triplicate Staff

Two unpaved roads at different sections of Redwood National and State Parks will be closed to vehicle traffic to allow for maintenance work.

Howland Hill Road through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park will be closed to vehicle traffic during the week starting Tuesday to allow for annual road maintenance, according to a park press release. Locked gates will bar vehicles at each end of the road into Stout Grove, but visitors may enter the area on foot.

The road will be open on weekends, and the work is scheduled to be finished by June 6, according to the release.

Meanwhile, Coastal Drive between Alder Camp Road and Klamath Beach Road will be closed for visitor safety. Erosion has made two-way vehicular traffic unsafe on that stretch of road, according to the press release. Park maintenance crews are working to install new road signs and other safety improvements and will re-open the road as a one-way scenic route.

Alternative scenic drives into Redwood National and State Parks include the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway, the Requa Road to the Klamath River Overlook, Bald Hills Road and U.S. Highway 199.
