The visitors area to the Heceta Lighthouse on Highway 101 north of Florence is no longer as bumpy as the ocean it overlooks. A complete rebuild is now in place and open for visitors. The $340,000 in improvements included the parking area as well as the trail leading to the lighthouse.
The picturesque park is well known for it’s famous lighthouse, beach and historic Lighthouse Keeper’s Bed and Breakfast Inn. The park welcomes nearly a million visitors a year.
Meanwhile, work continues on a facelift to the lighthouse itself. The work will take until late 2013.
