Parking area improvement project begins next week at former site of U.S. Coast Guard Station

National Park Service.

A project to improve a parking area at the former site of the Bodie Island Coast Guard Station is scheduled to begin Monday, Dec. 5, 2022. Through Feb. 2023, visitors should use Coquina Beach Access, located approximately three-tenths of a mile south of the project site.

DOT Construction (Charlotte, N.C.) 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.
