Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- April 5, 2019

The past week saw no progress toward construction of the planned sidewalk as Dominion Energy completed preparations for moving several underground lines.

The upcoming week (beginning 4/8) will see more substantial progress.  RPC Contracting will begin grading for the sidewalk at Aqua Restaurant & Spa and work northward to Super Wings over the next few weeks.  In the meantime, Dominion Energy will be completing an underground power line installation in the stretch from the Town Park to Osprey Landing Shopping Center.  A pavement marking subcontractor is scheduled begin work toward the end of the week installing crosswalk striping and road markings for the project.

Due to the use of heavy equipment, the southbound travel lane may be closed at times with traffic being directed into the middle lane during the closures. Please be alert for construction activity and drive slowly and safely as you travel through this area of town.

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 new lighted crosswalks at the Waterfront Shops and Dune Road.  Phase 2 construction has an expected completion date sometime in May.

For questions about these proposed pedestrian improvements, you can contact Director of Community Development Joe Heard at jheard@townofduck.com or (252)255-1234.
