Cape Hatteras National Seashore announced on Wednesday that their
visitor center, off-road vehicle permit office, and campground on
Ocracoke Island will reopen on Friday morning, September 21.
County is allowing visitors back on Ocracoke Island starting Friday as
well, using the Swan Quarter to Ocracoke ferry route, or the Cedar
Island to Ocracoke route.
Hatteras to Ocracoke ferry route remains closed because repair and
cleanup work is needed at the north end of the island, where ocean
overwash impacted a 1-2 mile stretch of N.C. Highway 12. There is not
yet a timeframe on when these repairs will be complete.
ferry route from Hatteras will be reestablished by the NCDOT Ferry
Division once the northern end of the island is safe for travel again.
