RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 27, 2014) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has closed a pair of boating access areas in the coastal plain for renovations — Dawson Creek in Pamlico County and Turkey Creek in Onslow County.

Dawson Creek BAA, which provides access to the Neuse River near Oriental, and Turkey Creek BAA, which provides access to the Intracoastal Waterway, will be closed for approximately three months while Commission staff demolishes existing docks and ramps and constructs new ramps and an ADA-compliant floating boat dock. 

The Commission will pay for the renovations using money from motorboat registration receipts as well as a coastal recreational fishing license grant from the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries.
