Assateague Island Reopening After Storm

BERLIN, Md. (AP) — The National Park Service says it is partially reopening Maryland’s Assateague Island National Seashore, which sustained some damage during Superstorm Sandy.

The Park Service says the North Ocean Beach parking will open Friday for day use, and the visitor center is open. But the park is currently closed to camping and hunting. Several parking lots where there is still high water are also closed.

A cycling and pedestrian bridge was severely damaged by the storm and will be closed for now. Portions of bike lanes on the island were also damaged.

Virginia’s Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, which is south of Assateague Island National Seashore, is closed. The Park Service says most of the beach parking has been destroyed.
