4-wheel drive access on Pea Island re-opens

Posted at 4:34 PM, Nov 14, 2012

Four-wheel drive access on Pea Island along N.C. 12 is open again, following closure due to ocean overwash Wednesday morning.

Officials say access is expected to be closed intermittently during upcoming storms, and could occur with very little advance notice due to rapidly changing weather conditions.

If you plan to drive in this area, please be sure to call 511 or go to the department’s travel information website to check on road conditions before you head out. 

Officials warn those with 4-wheel drive to expect a “rough” ride.
