Golden Gate National Recreation Area officials are warning those planning to watch Fourth of July fireworks in the Marin Headlands that road construction will cause more traffic congestion than usual and some people may be turned away.
"Where people have traditionally come down there to see the fireworks, it will be more difficult and they'll have to plan more," GGNRA spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet said.
Road closures include Conzelman Road from McCullough Road to Field Road, and East Road at Fort Baker. Conzelman Road may also be closed from Alexander Avenue to McCullough Road.
The $8.7 million Project Headlands construction north of the Golden Gate Bridge began this year and is expected to take four years to complete, Picavet said.
The park's Nike Missile Site will be open 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on July 3. Stephen Haller and John Martini, local historians and authors of the book "The Last Missile Site," will be on hand to talk with visitors
