Ocean overwash from Noel closed parts of highway 12 on Hatteras Island between Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe Saturday morning.
The Department of Transportation worked all day to re-open the highway by six this evening.
The storm's affects sent sand on the highway blocking the only way on and off the island.
