RPC Contracting plans to begin initial grading of the sidewalk corridor at the northern end of the project area (by Resort Realty) on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. Due to the use of heavy equipment, the southbound travel lane may be closed at times. At such times, traffic will be directed into the middle lane. Please be alert for construction activity and drive slowly and safely through this area as you travel through town next week.
RPC will not be engaging in work during the Thanksgiving holiday or weekend.
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 late-Fall/Winter months, with an expected completion date sometime in late-April/early-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.
