Description:

The Environmental Assessment for the Recreational Beach Relocation Project at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge analyzes the proposed action for the site design of the facilities needed to support the relocation of the recreational beach, as described in the August 2015 Final Comprehensive Conservation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement and approved by the Record of Decision signed on November 6, 2015. The proposed action would configure the parking areas, roads, and related facilities needed to access and support the use of the new recreational beach. Included in the proposed action is the: construction of a new two-lane access road and roundabout intersection; improvement of the entrance fee booth area; new parking areas and paths to access the new recreational beach; vault toilets, rinse-off showers, foul weather shelters, changing room cabanas and other facilities needed to provide a safe and appropriate beach recreation experience; a new multi-use trail; replacement of the water control structures on C- and D-dikes; relocation of the NPS staff offices and educational programs currently residing at Toms Cove Visitor Center; and, a new parking area at the South Pony Corral.
