OPRD announces short-term closure of Ecola State Park Sept. 11-12

Sept. 7, 2017

Cannon Beach OR -- Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will close Ecola State Park the afternoon of Sept.11 through Sept. 12 to accommodate work on Ecola Park Road.

Oregon Department of Transportation District 1 crews will install a culvert near the Cannon Beach city limits on Sept. 12. The project will temporarily close Ecola Park Road in both directions for several hours on Sept. 12. ODOT will be able to accommodate emergency vehicle access, but local and park traffic will be restricted.

"The work is necessary to improve drainage and repair a failing section of the roadway," said ODOT District 1 Manager Mark Buffington. "We will need to close the road completely for about four hours; hopefully less."

Ecola State Park will reopen upon completion of the repair work, barring unforeseen circumstances.
