Update on NC 12 Storm Water Project-Thursday, September 23, 2010

After taking a break for the summer season, work began in earnest to complete the storm water improvements on NC 12 (Duck Road) in the southern portion of the Town of Duck on Monday, September 13, 2010.

Beginning the week of September 27, 2010, crews will be working along the sides of the roadway in the project area. The project area is from Bias Lane to Seahawk Drive. Crews will also be watering down the temporary stone roadway to keep it smooth. Lane closures should be minimal.

Project construction is expected to continue through December and resume again in early spring. It is anticipated that there will be delays and temporary lane closures during the project period. The road through the project area will be an unmarked stone base, with center line drum delineators. Please observe the reduced speed limits posted, drive slowly and cautiously, and plan for additional travel time. Traffic on NC 12 approaching Duck from the south may be viewed here.

Regular updates will be provided as work progresses to the Town of Duck’s stakeholders via e-mail, townofduck.com, media communications, Facebook: “Town of Duck”, Twitter: “DuckPR”, and on the Town’s recorded hotline at (252) 255-1286.
