ICW - Dismal Swamp Canal Closure
Author Last Post
The Dismal Swamp Canal on the ICW is one of two ways to transit between the Chesapeake Bay, VA and Albemarle Sound in NC. This is a popular and historic route.  The canal has been closed since damage to the locks and shoaling incurred during hurricane Mathew last fall.  I stopped at the Dismal Swamp Visitors Center in South Mills, NC while driving north to VA for a canal update and was given a press release from the Army Corp of Engineers.  It was dated March 17, 2017 and stated their goal of opening the canal is late summer 2017.  For subsequent updates contact.
