NC12 Oregon Inlet

NC12 is now CLOSED south of Oregon Inlet due to ocean overwash making the road impassible in several locations.

The main road through the Outer Banks is closed in both directions near Hatteras Island because ocean water is going over the dunes and onto the road. 

The North Carolina Department of Transportation closed NC12 between the Bonner Bridge and Hatteras Village due to ocean overwash.

NCDOT said a reopening time is unknown at this time.
