Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- May 31, 2019

Over the past week, RPC Contracting has made substantial progress toward the completion of the sidewalk along the west side of Duck Village.  RPC has been forming and pouring sidewalks and driveways along the southern portion of the project.

During the week of June 3rd, RPC will be forming and pouring sidewalks from Super Wings northward through the area abutting the Town Green.  Driveways for the Soundside Shoppes and Soundfeet Shoes/Ocean Atlantic Rentals will temporarily have one lane of their driveways closed as the new concrete hardens.  All commercial properties will still be accessible and are open for business.

Due to the use of heavy equipment, the southbound travel lane may be closed at times with traffic 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 II construction has an expected completion date during the second week in June.

RPC Contracting is also removing asphalt in preparation for replacing two sections of the Duck Trail adjoining the Sanderling neighborhood in the northern part of Town. These areas had bumps and broken asphalt due to root intrusion. The replacement sections will be in concrete for better stability and wear over time.
