During the winter and spring of 2014 / 2015, all access to Zabriskie Point and surrounding areas will be closed for major rehabilita- tion work to the site. Contractors will repair unstable support walls and improve safety conditions.
Currently, the walls are deteriorat- ing to the extent that they pose a danger to public safety.
The popular vista was built by the Pacific Coast Borax Company in the 1920s and was named af-
ter the company’s vice president and general manager, Christian Zabriskie. The site was originally intended as a waystop for visitors in automobiles to see Manly Beacon, the prominent
landmark in Death Valley’s “bad- lands”. It remains as one of the most visited areas within the park.
Other venues in the area to visit during the closure recommended by park staff are Golden Canyon, Artist’s Drive, or Dante’s View for exceptional vistas of the valley floor and distant peaks.
During construction, CA Hwy 190 will remain open to through traffic.
Je n'en sais pas plus, mais je suis preneur d'informations (je suis sur place en Avril 2015) et espère que le site soit réouvert.
