Park Update Summer/Fall 2022:
The Eastside Drive Bridge replacement project will commence on September 12, 2022. This means a FULL CLOSURE on this stretch of Eastside Drive from Warren Wagon Road to the North Beach access parking lot through January 16, 2023.
The North Beach parking area can be accessed via East Side Drive (until the snow flies). Warren Wagon Road will not be impacted with closures.
Construction Update: Construction on State Highway 55 near Smiths Ferry has reached a major milestone as work pauses for the winter season. Road paving and major slope excavation are now complete with two lanes open for travel.
