WAYNE COUNTY, N.Y. (WWTI) — The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is advising deer hunters of a road closure in Wayne County.

According to a press release from the DEC, flood-stage water in the Seneca River has resulted in the temporary closure of Carncross Road. The road is the only vehicle access to Howland Island at the Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area.

According to the DEC, the closure may extend through the early part of the Southern Zone firearm season, which begins on November 20. Non-motorized access to Howland Island is available through the bridge on Howland Island Road in Port Byron or by crossing the Seneca River by watercraft.
