Over the past week, RPC Contracting has sprayed grass seed to stabilize the areas adjoining the sidewalk in the northern portion of the pedestrian project and completed construction of the new dumpster enclosure at the Osprey Landing shopping center.
Pending confirmation by Dominion Energy, RPC plans on beginning sidewalk grading from the Osprey Landing shopping center southward toward Aqua Restaurant & Spa. Dominion Energy will be completing some underground power line work in the stretch in front of Duck Town Hall in preparation for moving a major distribution line.
Due to the use of heavy equipment, the southbound travel lane may be closed at times with traffic being 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 2 construction has an expected completion date sometime in May.
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.
