Yes, you can control this with a condition (like looking for a specific
cookie, header or source IP address). In the example below, you would
use a cookie to gain access:

<VirtualHost *:80>
      RewriteCond !%{HTTP_COOKIE} LetMeIn
      RewriteRule .* /path/to/maintenance.html [L]

   #Existing directives
