An editorial in The Daily Press today states that CBBT Island #1 "the
closest one to the bridge-tunnel's south end, will be shut down by the end
of the month. And it's not going to reopen. ... Part of that pleasure has
been pulling off at the first island to enjoy the view and grab a bite at
the grill. By the end of the month, you won't be able to do that any
longer."
Apparently I missed something in earlier publicity about this tunnel
expansion project as I did not understand that Island #1 would never
reopen. If this is correct, this is a real blow to birders who can only
stop at island to bird the CBBT. I had heard that CBBT will continue to
escort groups of birders to islands where construction would not interfere
with birding throughout this project. It sounds like birding the CBBT will
be seriously impacted by this construction. Does anyone have more reliable
information on individual access to island 1 after construction is
completed? Or what group access to all islands will be like during and
after construction?
