Five-refuge team restores emergency evacuation route at Virginia’s Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge
Mar. 6, 2014 – At the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach, a team of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service maintenance workers from five different refuges have repaired seven and a half miles of a road and dike that eroded during Hurricane Sandy. The team used 4,850 tons of stone to regrade and stabilize the road, and improve drainage to better weather future storms. Their work restored an important emergency evacuation route for residents of coastal North Carolina.
