Visitor Facilities at Cape Hatteras NS and Visitor Center
at Fort Raleigh NHS Reopening Tomorrow; Wright
Brothers NMEM to Remain Closed Through Weekend
Park Service visitor facilities at Cape Hatteras National Seashore and
the Visitor Center at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site will reopen
tomorrow morning. Wright Brothers National Memorial will remain closed
through the weekend.
Wright Brothers National Memorial will remain closed through the
weekend due to significant ice accumulation on the parking lot and most
roads and walking paths. Below freezing temperatures over the next
couple days will most likely not allow for safe travel through the park.
All trails and unsafe walking paths will be closed at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site until branches and ice can be cleared.
“Although visitor facilities at Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the
Visitor Center at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site are reopening
tomorrow, it is important to remember that some roads in the area may
still be hazardous,” said National Parks of Eastern North Carolina
Superintendent David Hallac. “Please continue to use caution if you
plan to visit these parks this weekend.”
