NPS WORK CREW INSTALL BEACH ACCESS RAMP COUNTERS

Outer Banks Group Superintendent Mike Murray announced today that National

Park Service (NPS) staff will install new traffic counters on five of the

beach access ramps beginning March 11, 2009. As a result of

recommendations to track ORV usage within Cape Hatteras National Seashore

(Seashore), the new system is designed to record traffic at selected beach

access ramps that are indicative of ORV usage in the surrounding areas and

utilizes methodology based on proven statistical models already in use

throughout the NPS system.

The locations for the newly installed traffic counters are:

Ramp 2 at Coquina Beach

Ramp 34 north of Avon Village

Ramps 43/44 near Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Ramp 55 at the southern end of Hatteras Village

Ramp 70 near Ocracoke Airstrip

Installation requires partial closure of each ramp for a period of four

hours but access is possible except for Ramp 55. The placement of the

traffic counter at Ramp 55 will require total closure of access or egress

to and from Hatteras Inlet and the Pole Road during that four hour period

of time. If weather conditions permit, Ramp 55 traffic counter

installation is scheduled for Thursday, March 19 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:

noon.

For further information, please call 252-473-2111 ext. 148.
