Onslow Beach Road, Nov. 1, 2021 through March 2025

As part of the Task Force Florence hurricane reconstruction project, the dirt road north of the Onslow Beach Bridge and on the east side of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway will be closed for repairs. This closure also includes the fishing piers on the mainland side and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway side, north of the bridge. Only the dirt road will be closed during this project. Onslow Beach Road will remain open. The project is expected to be complete in March of 2025.

Gate Closure: Midway Park, Oct. 3 – Nov. 29

Security upgrades to the Midway Park Gate will require a full closure beginning Oct. 3, 2022 at 6 p.m. through Nov. 29 at 6 p.m. During this period, personnel should access Midway Park via the Butler Gate, located off Holcomb Blvd, prior to the NC-24 entrance ramp.

The Butler Gate will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week until this project is complete. Personnel will also be able to exit Midway Park using the old Midway Park Gate, near the Marine Mart, during its regular operating hours, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To access the Butler Gate from off base, personnel will need to use the Camp Lejeune Main Gate exit off NC-24, when traveling in both east and west directions. Upon exit from NC-24, follow Holcomb Boulevard and make a legal U-turn before reaching the Holcomb Gate, then proceed back down Holcomb Boulevard and the Butler Gate will be on your right-hand side.

The security upgrades at the Midway Park Gate are part of a larger project where several gates will undergo closures over the next year. Additional gate locations and closures will be announced in advance of each project. 

There are no scheduled power outages at this time.

Personnel living in the barracks or BOQ should report any power outages to their barracks manager.

Personnel living on base should report any power outages to their PPV housing office maintenance line.

Tropical Storm/Hurricane Ian Update: Eastern Carolina impacts

'Ian' is now a strong Tropical Storm located about 400 miles S-SW of Jacksonville, N.C., as of 5 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022. Hurricane Ian will move north of the Southeast through tonight moving over the Carolinas Friday into Saturday. Regardless of the exact track of Ian, there is the potential for extensive impacts to eastern North Carolina.

Heavy rain bands will bring widespread rainfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches, with locally higher amounts, bringing the threat of localized flooding, especially in low-lying, urban, and poor drainage areas. Life-threatening storm surge inundation of 2 to 4 feet above ground is possible along much of the coast, with greatest confidence in inundation values approaching 4 feet along the lower Neuse River. Winds approaching tropical storm force could lead to some downed trees and isolated power outages. Tornadoes may result in areas of locally enhanced damage.

Dangerous marine conditions are expected for all offshore waters and the Pamlico Sound, with strong winds and seas building to create treacherous conditions for mariners. Stronger and more frequent rip currents will also exist along area beaches.

All MCIEAST components, tenants, and community members are advised to take the necessary precautions now in advance of weather effects from Ian and as always, monitor the National Weather Service and National Hurricane Center forecasts and follow the advice they offer.

The annual Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30 each year. MCB Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River are now in Tropical Cyclone Condition V (TCC-V) which indicates a seasonal destructive readiness level. The potential for destructive weather is elevated, but no specific system threatens the area.

The Camp Lejeune Forestry Division schedules over 20,000 acres of prescribed burning annually. Those burns normally begin in January of each year and are completed by August. (Learn more)
