Bridge day is coming! If you are a private boater, there is important information about boating and shuttle access at Fayette station.
At 6 pm on Friday, Oct 19th, Fayette Station Road (Route 82) below Teays Landing Road will be closed to all vehicles. Boaters may access Teays Landing by Fayette Station Road to set shuttle that evening, but must exit Teays via the Burma Road. Any vehicles parked at Fayette Station after 6 pm on Friday will be towed.
When parking at Teays Landing, park at the downstream end of the road and walk from the river to your vehicles at the end of the day. Do not drive through the tunnel. Please do not block the road, commercial buses will be using this private road.
On Bridge Day, Saturday October 20th, private vehicles will not be able to access Fayette Station or Teays Landing. If you have set shuttle the evening before at Teays Landing, you will need to use Burma Rd when leaving the river.
For the safety of both boaters and jumpers, spectating from the river banks below Fayette Station Rapid to Fleaflicker Rapid is not allowed. Boaters should continue paddling through the pool below the New River Gorge Bridge staying towards the far right hand side of the river.
Thank you and have a safe and fun Bridge Day! (Image description: A BASE lands in the New River)
