APEX Construction, Inc., a contractor from Ocean City, Maryland, has begun renovating the restroom facility at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Day Use Area on Ocracoke.

The new, fully accessible restroom facility is expected to be completed and reopened by mid-June, the Park Service said in a press release.

During the construction of the $349,000 project, portable restrooms will be available at this public beach, also known as the Lifeguard Beach.  Lifeguards cover this beach from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Seashore visitors will continue to have access to the parking lot and boardwalk.
