Wildlife Drive reopens at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

May 18, 2013 - The popular 8-mile loop known as Wildlife Drive has reopened at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Closed since October of 2012 due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, the road, which hosts over 100,000 visitors annually, required three months and 2,000 dump truck loads of fill to repair holes in its top and sides that made it virtually impassable. The Federal Highway Administration funded the repairs, which began on Jan. 14, through the Emergency Relief to Federally Owned Roads program.
