FLORENCE, Ore. – A portion of road and two parking areas in the South Jetty area near Florence will be temporarily closed for maintenance May 19 and 20.

The parking lot at the South Jetty #6 crab dock and Sand Dunes Road north of the South Jetty #7 parking area will be closed to vehicles while workers repair road and lot surfaces.

Visitors may park at the #7 parking area and access the crab dock and beach by foot.

A crew of Marine Reserves out of Springfield, Ore., will be grading and graveling surfaces, as well as removing sand that has accumulated around the dock pathway, as part of a heavy equipment training-service partnership with the Forest Service.

Visitors to the South Jetty area are encouraged to use caution as they may encounter heavy equipment and road flaggers throughout the weekend.
