There has been significant progress toward completion of the first phase of pedestrian improvements along the east side of Duck Road (N.C. Highway 12) in Duck Village. Over the past week, Barnhill Contracting completed grading improvements to ensure a smooth transition for the sidewalk at many road intersections. Barnhill also focused on neatening up the project area in time for the busy Easter weekend.
Construction activity will be minimal next week as Barnhill will be repairing some irrigation systems and touching up several areas prior to final grading and stabilizing the banks adjoining the sidewalk. They do not plan to engage in any activities requiring traffic stoppage or redirection and plan to wait until after Easter week to begin construction of the two gateway medians in the center lane north and south of Duck Village.
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.
