Nighttime driving on the beach at Cape Hatteras National Seashore returns Thursday though November 15, the National Park Service has announced. Driving on the ocean beaches between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. requires a permit available here.
Drivers must sign and date a permit, and it must be visibly displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle.
The permitting process is part of federal rules that close stretches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore during sea turtle nesting season.
Areas reopened this week include:
* Tri-villages (Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo) beachfront, approximately 3 miles long, extending from the southernmost boundary of Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge to Ramp 23.
* Avon village beachfront, approximately 4 miles long.
* Ocracoke Campground and day use area beaches, approximately 2.5 miles long.
