Unrestricted Access to Hatteras Island
Effective Friday, August 4 at 12 p.m.

Beginning Friday, August 4 at 12:00 p.m. there will be unrestricted access to Hatteras Island. As crews continue energizing circuits on the island with the repaired transmission line, Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative (CHEC) has assured local officials that reliable and adequate power will be available to enable the return of visitors on Friday afternoon.

The mandatory power restrictions for Hatteras Island are now lifted to allow CHEC to complete the safe stabilization of the power grid.

Visitors are encouraged to contact their Hatteras Island accommodations provider to confirm their reservation and arrival plans.

Visitors traveling to Hatteras Island may consider an alternate route from the west to expedite travel. From I-95 in North Carolina, take US-64 East towards Rocky Mount. Follow US-64 East through Williamston and Plymouth, NC. From Plymouth, NC keep going east to Roanoke Island and follow Highway 12 South to Hatteras Island.
