Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- November 9, 2018

Over the past week, RPC Contracting completed some surveying and installation of silt fencing to prevent erosion during minor grading work. These efforts will continue during the week of November 12th. Toward the end of next week, RPC could potentially begin initial grading of the sidewalk corridor at the northern end of the project area.

At the direction of the Town, RPC Contracting will not be engaging in work during the Thanksgiving holiday. Access will be kept open to all properties during the project. Business and property owners can expect the construction to occur in a similar manner to last year’s Phase 1 project.

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.
