A portion of the Dana Strand Beach parking lot will be closed for the rest of the summer, The Orange County Register reported. The closure is due to a maintenance project undertaken by the county.
The project intends to add speed bumps, upgrading curb ramps, and reconstructing the sidewalk and gutters, according to The Register.
“County officials say the timing of the project was set in collaboration with the city of Dana Point,” The Register said. “Despite heavy use of the beach, county officials said the project was scheduled from July through September to reduce the impact on an upcoming city project expected to take place soon after the parking lot project is done. In mid-to-late October, the city plans to apply a slurry seal to Selva Road, where resurfacing is done about every seven years.”
Half of the lot will still be open.
