After taking a break for the summer season, work will resume in earnest on the stormwater improvements on NC 12 (Duck Road) in the southern portion of Duck on Monday, September 13, 2010. Crews under contract with the North Carolina Department of Transportation have already begun work installing bands to reinforce the water lines within the project area (Bias Lane to Sea Hawk Drive). Once these bands are installed, the contractors will begin to install the stormwater retention chambers within the NC 12 right-of way. This work will take several months to complete and traffic delays due to temporary lane closures should be expected. In early 2011, the contractors are expected to begin major work to raise NC 12 in the project area. This phase of the project will result in lane closures that will cause traffic delays. All work is expected to be completed by mid-May 2011.
