national refuge

Hi, can anyone let me know if the visitor centre and driving trail has been re-opened yet. The website states it should open on the 1st October but we went on the 11th and it was still not open. Thanks for any help.

Odd. The webpage with visitor center operating hours says it was updated today (Oct 12) and indicates the visitor center is open.

http://www.fws.gov/merrittisland/VIC.html

Maybe best to call and see what's up.

Visitor Center (321) 861-0668

Refuge Headquarters (321) 861-0667

The events page must be what you consulted--the Black Point drive is the main visitor site. Of course it, too says the page was updated Oct. 12.

I know they were working on the bridge from Titusville some time ago. I haven't had the opportunity to go to Playa Linda in several months. Let us know what you find out.

we did get over the bridge where the roadworks are, no probs there. we waited at the entrance gates to the visitor centre but they were locked. Went to the drive and there was also a gate across that and a notice which had closed due to open mid Octobwr on it.
