Pedestrian Plan Phase II Update- November 26, 2018

RPC Contracting plans to start initial grading of the sidewalk corridor at the northern end of the project area (by Resort Realty) this 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.

CenturyLink is scheduled to begin the relocation of the terminal in front of the Osprey Landing shopping center at 1190 Duck Road this week. Spectrum will also be moving half a dozen cable pedestals from the sidewalk’s path over the next few weeks.

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 jheard@townofduck.com or (252)255-1234.
