The Town of Duck is now embarking on its first pedestrian plan, as a way to refine the overall pedestrian experience. This will be a town-wide plan which will focus on infrastructure improvements as well as safety and education programs. A specific focus will also be the village center, which has high pedestrian and bicycle usage, served only by a wide shoulder on each side of NC 12. The Town has formed a steering committee of business owners, residents, community planners and elected officials to guide the planning process. This project is being conducted in conjunction with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Division, which will be a vital role in project development and implementation. We will have a project website for the course of the study www.townofduck.com/pedplan/. Here you will be able to find information about the plan as well as minutes from all meetings. Please review the ways you can participate listed below to help planners create a Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan for the Town of Duck.

Track Your Path and help us gather additional data! Download VHB BikeWays and use your iPhone or Android’s GPS support to track trip routes. It’s simple to use: tap START to start recording your trip, SAVE at the end, and specify a purpose (commuting, shopping, exercise, etc.). Data representing the purpose, route, date and time are sent to VHB’s servers. Think of it as a travel survey that asks you why and where you are riding, but automatically maps your route rather than asking you to write it down from memory.
