August 14, 2012 (ORLEANS) _ For the first time since the first week of June – off-road vehicles are being allowed on Nauset Beach south of the main parking lot. Nesting piping plovers forced the complete closure to off-roaders for the majority of the summer. Orleans Park and Beaches Superintendent Paul Fulcher says they now have limited access from 9 am to 5 pm. Full access will be allowed once the final unfledged piping plover is able to fly. Fulcher says the closure results in a yearly loss of sticker fees of nearly $450,000 – and even more than that in lost business for the town.
