there is an expanded turtle nest with no through access between Ramp 43
and Ramp 44. It has red stop signs and red carsonites with rope
strung between them down to the high tide line as well as square white
signs advising turtle nest and no driving through or below the
nest. Night driving restrictions are in place on either side of
the nest for 0.5 miles from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. You can drive past
the yellow carsonites during the day. Cape Point can still be
accessed at night via the Bypass Road.
The expanded turtle nest south of Ramp 38 was removed today allowing further access.
