Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- February 8, 2019

Over the past week, the project really began to take shape as RPC Contracting began to pour the sidewalk.  RRP poured most of the sidewalk from Resort Realty at the northern end of the project through the southern entrance to the Waterfront Shops.   New driveways were poured at Wee Winks Square, the southern entrance to the Duck United Methodist Church, and half of Nags Head Hammocks driveway.  Sidewalk forms have been constructed by the cemetery on the Town’s property in preparation for pouring that stretch of sidewalk.  CenturyLink completed the relocation of a large utility junction box from the path of the sidewalk in front of Osprey Landing.

As we move into the week of February 11th, we can expect to see RPC Construction continue southward with the formation and pouring of concrete driveways at the Dare County water tower and sidewalks further south.  The driveways at Duck United Methodist Church and Wee Winks Square will be made available to traffic again.

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 new lighted crosswalks at the Waterfront Shops and Dune Road. A majority of the Phase II construction will take place over the Winter/early-Spring months, with an expected completion date sometime in May 2019.
