Work on the Lynn Cove viaduct began on March 1, 2018 and will run though March, April, and May with the parkway reopening around Memorial Day weekend. The parkway section near the viaduct is closed to all uses, including hiking. This means that access to Ship Rock from the South is closed until the section reopens, but you can still get there from the North by parking at the Rough Ridge or Wilson Creek overlooks as normal.
