Circle B’s Alligator Alley Remains Closed as Birds Return

Migrating birds are already returning to Circle B Bar Reserve, but it will be a bit longer before nature lovers can hike the popular Alligator Alley trail beyond the gazebo on Lake Hancock. County officials say it will be about three weeks until they hear from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about whether they can restore parts of the shoreline eroded by Hurricane Irma. After the work is approved, restoration work will take at least three months, possibly longer depending on rainfall.
