RALEIGH, N.C. (March 3, 2011) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed renovations on the Ocean Isle Beach Boating Access Area, which will reopen to the public Friday, March 4.

The Commission has expanded and paved the parking lot and also added additional stormwater treatment facilities.

“Our coastal region continues to be a popular destination for boaters across North Carolina, said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “These renovations will make Ocean Isle a more convenient spot for boaters, and we are pleased to provide this improved access to our state’s waters.”
