  • Millis and Great Lake Roads on Croatan Closed

    The Croatan National Forest is closing Millis and Great Lake Roads as a result of significant damage from Hurricane Florence.

    A box culvert on the west end of Millis Road is washed out and the road is impassable. Water has pushed through on one side of the culvert intersecting the road creating a hazard to thru traffic. In addition, a bridge on Great Lake Road has been undermined by water and is structurally unsound.

    Forest officials caution the public not to access these two roads until they can be repaired. While these roads have been assessed and deemed unsafe for motorized use, they are likely not the only roads in this condition. As Forest Service crews continue to assess road conditions, additional closures may be put in place.

    Forest Service law enforcement officers will be preventing vehicles from accessing these roads until further notice.
