People have asked WMF about all the heavy trucks that are back on the road.

"(There is) earthwork and grading expected at Lawsons Landing between March 15 and April 2. This will involve hauling of clean excess dirt from Pt. Reyes National Seashore to Lawsons Landing by Ghilotti Construction. The dirt is from off-the-edge-of-road work inside the National Park, such as drainage swale improvements contracted by the National Park Service.

The trucks bringing this dirt will enter Lawsons Landing from the old Sand Haul Road (or back road) that starts near Elephant Rock on Dillon Beach Road. Thus, the trucks will not be coming through the town of Dillon Beach.

The earthwork and grading is a necessary element of the new wastewater system, a long awaited major component of Lawsons Landing’s Coastal Development Permit. The Regional Water Quality Board also approved the wastewater system design. The specific details of the earthwork and grading was also permitted Feb. 19, 2021 by the California Housing and Community Development (HCD), who issue permits for improvements for Special Occupancy Parks like Lawsons Landing."
