NC Zoo to remain closed as other attractions open

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina's aquariums are reopening as the icy weather retreats, but the N.C. Zoo will remain closed for a fourth straight day.

The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources said the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh reopened Thursday on its regular schedule. The state's three coastal aquariums at Pine Knoll Shores, Fort Fisher and Roanoke Island will reopen at 9 a.m. Friday.

Jennette's Pier also reopens for its regular hours, starting at 8 a.m. Friday.

Staff members at the zoo will determine Friday if roads accessing the zoo and sidewalks in the zoo are safe enough to accommodate visitors this weekend. An announcement about whether the zoo will be open this weekend will be made Friday.
