[EXPIRED] USACE: LNM: Dismal Swamp Canal Closed due to Trees Down
The Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center is located adjacent to the Dismal Swamp State Park, offering trails, exhibits and ongoing programs in Camden County, NC. Docks are provided by the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR and a NC DOT Rest Area facility. Our thanks to Donna Stewart for this notice. See Mr. Scussel’s note below. Your alternate route is the VA – NC Cut through Great Bridge, VA.
We have received a temporary closure notice for the Dismal Swamp Canal. Due to high winds during TS Isaias, several trees went down. The majority of the trees are north of our location. The Norfolk District USACE expects the Elizabeth (barge/crane and crew) to begin working tomorrow to clear debris to resume operations. We will notify you when we are aware of the reopening.
