Over the past week, RPC Contracting continued initial grading in the area near the Waterfront Shops and Dare County water tower.
RPC Contracting will continue with initial grading of the sidewalk corridor next week moving south of the water tower. Millstone Marine may begin construction of several bulkheads along the path of the sidewalk. 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 through this area as you travel through 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 a lighted crosswalk at Dune Road. A majority of the Phase 2 construction will take place over the Winter/early-Spring months, with an expected completion date sometime in May 2019.
For questions about these proposed pedestrian improvements, you can contact Director of Community Development Joe Heard at firstname.lastname@example.org or (252)255-1234.
