Refuge's lower road reopens

NEWBURYPORT — Officials at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge have announced that the refuge’s “lower road” — the graveled portion between the Hellcat Parking Lot and Sandy Point State Reservation — has been reopened.

The road reconstruction project that had limited public access to the southern part of the refuge for several weeks was completed well ahead of the predicted completion date.

The refuge wishes to thank the visiting public for their patience while the road was undergoing its first significant “face-lift” in 20 years.
