Work has begun on a project to replace the restroom facilities at the Ocracoke Day Use Area.
The construction, by contractor APEX Construction, Inc. of Ocean City, Maryland, should be complete by mid-June, National Park Service spokesman Mike Barber said in a news release.
The new facility, estimated to cost $349,000, will be fully accessible.
During the construction phase, portable restrooms will be available at the Ocracoke Day Use Area. Cape Hatteras National Seashore visitors will continue to have access to the parking lot and boardwalk.
