Work on the Lynn Cove viaduct begins 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 is closed until the section reopens. Please respect this closure. You can check on parkway status on this interactive map provided by the park service.
