Reconstruction is about to begin at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge to repair damages that occurred during Hurricane Sandy.
Thanks to funding from the Federal Highway Administration the large holes along Wildlife Drive in the refuge will begin being repaired January 14th.
Wildlife Drive has been closed since the storm hit in October.
The work is expected to take several months and officials hope to have Wildlife Drive open by the spring.
Other trails in the refuge remain open during construction and admission fees to the refuge have been temporarily waived.
