  • Road Closures on the Croatan National Forest

    Due to the impacts of Hurricane Florence in eastern North Carolina, the Croatan National Forest is putting in place additional road closures, effective immediately.

    The extent of damage to the Croatan is currently unknown, and will be evaluated as National Forest personnel begin assessments this week. The public and/or others are asked not to attempt to travel on Forest Service roads or use National Forest lands until damages are assessed.

    The health, safety, and well-being of our employees, the public, and visitors to our National Forests is our number one priority. The purpose of this closure is to mitigate risks to public health and safety, to provide for disaster and safety operations, and to protect the Forest's resources in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
