Historic Jamestown and Yorktown Battlefield to Reopen
August 29, 2011
Both Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield will reopen to the public on Tuesday, August 30.
The Colonial Parkway was fully reopened on August 28.
Although Colonial National Historical Park did not sustain any serious structural damage from Hurricane Irene, cleanup of downed trees and debris will continue as the visitor centers reopen and public programs are resumed. Restoration of utilities continues, and some tour roads and areas at both Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield will remain closed while crews complete the cleanup.
