I don't know why they can't put a sign up by the exit where they'd prefer you to get on the freeway.
They send out letters like this to SoCal bike clubs

Due to military operations, the bicycle facility on Old Pacific Highway from State Park to Las Pulgas will be closed as follows:

When: July 15-19. Daily from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Where: From Las Pulgas to State Park
Why: Closure due to military operations.

During the dates of restricted access, cyclists may ride on the Interstate 5 (I-5) shoulder as an alternate route.

Please pass this message along to others in your organizations and jurisdictions as you feel appropriate.

Thank you,

The weather today was very pleasant for a beach ride.

While that's NICE and all, if you don't belong to a bike club and don't see it, no joy. I'm just saying a simple sandwich board where you'd need to get on the freeway would be a nice touch, and cheap too.

much yes. don't ride with any clubs and nearly always ride solo. not holding my breath tho.
i will say i did appreciate the nod to military history with the one eighth-sized rommel's asparagus blocking our usual
egress point at the southern end of san onofre state park/northern end camp pendleton along old hwy 101.
not just for the beaches of normandy...

I had to look that up... so are you talking Rommelspargel (used to hinder gliders at various landing fields, basically just vertical poles with barb wire strung between) or Hemmbalken, which is a big log supported at one end by three smaller logs, which was an atlantic beach defense designed to impede landing craft.

i had been under the impression that rommel’s asparagus comprised 2-3 different defenses established for the beach areas of western europe. what i was thinking of and what i actually encountered was more of a czech hedgehog or “jack” from the child’s game.
