Over the past week, Albemarle Landscaping completed the initial removal of trees and vegetation along the path of the new sidewalk with remaining stumps to be ground or removed soon. During the upcoming week of November 5th, RPC Contracting plans to begin surveying and installation of silt fencing to prevent erosion during minor grading work. This work will likely start near the northern end of the project (Resort Realty) and head south.
The second phase of the sidewalk project will be constructed along the west side of Duck Road from the crosswalk at Aqua Restaurant & Spa to Resort Realty at the northern end of Duck Village. Planned improvements include a dedicated bike lane, landscaped strip, and sidewalk. The project will also involve utility relocation and the installation of a lighted crosswalk at Dune Road. A majority of the Phase 2 construction will take place over the late-Fall/Winter months, with an expected completion date sometime in late-April/early-May 2019.
