Hatteras residents can return in a staggered re-entry by village, starting on Sunday


The first phase of a staged re-entry for residents of Hatteras Island begins 6 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 4. 

The staged re-entry will begin with the villages of Buxton, Hatteras, and Frisco. 

“Conditions, utility service and other supporting infrastructure in those villages is the most conducive for re-entry at this time,” said a Dare County media release.  “As conditions improve in the remaining villages, re-entry will be established and announced as soon as possible.”

Re-entry will originate at the NCDOT Ferry Division dock at Stumpy Point on the Dare County mainland.  The re-entry times are staggered throughout the day in order to avoid long lines and further inconvenience.”
