A project to improve a parking area at the former site of the Bodie Island Coast Guard Station is scheduled to begin Monday, December 5.
The parking area is located oceanside off N.C. 12 between the South Old Oregon Inlet Road intersection and the access roads to the Bodie Island Light Station and Coquina Beach Access.
Through February 2023, visitors should use Coquina Beach Access, located approximately 0.3 mile south of the project site.
DOT Construction of Charlotte was recently awarded the contract to improve the parking area using a clay, sand and shell mixture.
In addition to improving the parking area, the contractor will repave the existing paved entrance, create a parking area boundary using wood posts and rope and make other safety-related improvements.
