BERLIN, Md. (AP) — Construction is under way on a new visitor contact station in the Maryland district of Assateague Island National Seashore. 

Superintendent Trish Kicklighter announced Tuesday that the new facility will replace the dilapidated structure that has served as the ranger station and campground office since the late 1960s. 

The new station is being built west of Bayberry Drive, next to the existing entrance booths. The number of lanes leading up to the entrance will be expanded at the new entrance to ease chronic congestion during the summer. 

The new station will be largely completed by mid-June, but staff won’t move in until the end of the summer, after the peak season.
