From our news services

Beginning Oct. 25, the Ocracoke Beach Access (Lifeguard beach) parking lot will be closed for approximately a week for a paving and repair project conducted by a Hyde County contractor.

The parking lot will receive a 1.5-inch overlay of asphalt and new striping as part of a project to repair damages incurred while the area was used for Hurricane Dorian debris storage.

During the project, the restroom facility at Ocracoke Beach Access will remain open for beach visitors.

An alternate parking area will be available for visitors next to the Ocracoke Campground.
