The first phase of pedestrian improvements along the east side of Duck Road (N.C. Highway 12) in Duck Village is nearing completion. After limiting construction activities for a couple of weeks over Spring Break and the Easter holiday, Barnhill Contracting has renewed its efforts to complete the project by May 15th.
Barnhill is presently repairing irrigation systems, final grading, and stabilizing the banks adjoining the sidewalk. They are also filling the area between the bike lane and sidewalk with river rock and soil for the landscaping. During the week of April 16th, Barnhill will continue these efforts and begin construction of the two landscaped gateway medians in the center lane of Duck Road. The northern gateway median will be located around the crosswalk at Sunset Grille. The southern gateway median will be near the Four Seasons neighborhood as vehicles enter Duck Village.
Although the sidewalk itself is complete, please be aware that the project area is still an active construction site. Whether walking, biking, or driving, please be alert for hazards and travel safely as you pass through the construction area.
