Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- May 10, 2019

Over the past week, RPC Contracting continued grading and installing the stone base in the remaining portions of the project prior to pouring sidewalks.  RPC plans to complete these preparations early next week.  By mid-week, RPC will begin installing the forms for the concrete sidewalks.  Weather permitting, RPC may begin pouring a stretch of sidewalk at the southern end of the project by Friday, May 17th.  The concrete pouring will begin at the northern edge of Aqua’s driveway and continue northward.

Dominion Energy has completed nearly all of its boring in preparation for relocation of an underground power line running in front of Town Hall southward and through the Osprey Landing Shopping Center.  Dominion plans to splice the new lines at the southern (Super Wings/Soundfeet Shoes) and northern (Town Hall/Kellogg Hardware) ends of their project area during the week of May 13th.  RPC will be able to complete its concrete forms and pouring in these areas during the following week.

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.
