CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Carolina Beach will close Freeman Park to vehicles for more than a week next month as the town begins work on a wooden ramp at the park's entrance.
The park will be closed to traffic April 7-16.
The wooden "Hatteras" ramp will be built at the park's entrance on the north end of Canal Drive. The town says the ramp will provide a solid driving surface for vehicles as they enter and leave the park. The goal is to alleviate traffic back-ups during peak times.
The town says the ramp will begin at the end of the existing pavement and extend north 320 feet along the narrow entryway between the dunes where most congestion problems occur.
