The Dismal Swamp Canal reopened October 31:
The Dismal Swamp Canal has been closed since October 2016 due to the extensive damage received from hurricane Matthew. Following months of dredging and fallen tree removal the Norfolk District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reopened the canal on October 31, 2107. Additional dredging is scheduled for 2017 and 2018 to return the canal to its design depths, but after 13 months of closure, the canal is finally open again. (posted 11/18/2017)
