Chatham County Haw River Canoe Accesses Closed
Effective immediately, the canoe accesses located at 15/501 on the Haw River and Highway 64 on the Haw River will be closed due to threat of dangerous conditions as a result of Hurricane Florence.
Rising flood waters create dangerous conditions for both boaters and rescuers. For the safety of everyone involved it is best to refrain from entering the water until river waters recede.
Be advised North Carolina General Statute §20-161 prohibits stopping or parking on the side of public highways. For your safety, and the safety of other drivers, do not park on the highway near the canoe accesses.
The canoe accesses will remain closed until further notice. Impacts on the Haw River are expected to last several days.
