CARTERET COUNTY, NC – On Friday, May 27, Carteret County Government will reopen Radio Island beach
access. Gates will open to the public at 8 a.m.
In March, Radio Island beach access was temporarily closed for visitor use for dredging maintenance of East
Taylors Creek by T. D. Eure Marine Construction. The work for the project involved reusing over 35,000 cubic
yards of material dredged from East Taylors Creek for placement on approximately 2,775 linear feet of
estuarine shoreline along the southeast side of Radio Island.
