In preparation for the Old Lyme CBC, I’ve been in touch with Bill Mattioli, supervisor of Hammonasset State Park. I’m enclosing his response (with his permission) to my question about access to the east side of the park. He has been very helpful and responsive to my emails.

Hello – 

Just wanted to get back to you regarding your question. The Meigs point area is due to be open Jan. 1, 2018 and since that falls on a Monday, the area will be open for vehicle traffic beginning Saturday Dec. 30th. The construction company will open that area at the close of their day Friday Dec. 29th.

Please advise your entire group there may be hazards (raised structures, uneven land, and unavailable area etc.) depending on where they go. This is unavoidable until the project is completed due to the scope and timing of everything. 

Thank you

Bill Mattioli

Park Supervisor

Hammonasset Beach State Park
