Road and area closures at Cape Disappointment State Park

Published Jan. 25, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. –The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin rehabilitating the Mouth of the Columbia River’s North Jetty in February, impacting public access to parts of Cape Disappointment State Park

The jetty, North Jetty Road and nearby parking lots will be closed to public access from Feb. 12 - Oct. 30, 2018 and March 17 - Nov.1, 2019. Benson and Waikiki beaches are not affected by these repairs and will remain open during construction.

The Corps constructed the MCR jetty system between 1885 and 1939. The system consists of three rubble-mound jetties: North Jetty, South Jetty and Jetty A. The jetties, which together total 9.7 miles in length, minimize navigation channel maintenance and make passage safer for vessels transiting between the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia River.
