Over the past week, RPC Contracting has completed much of the grading and site preparation for the sidewalk and driveways along the remaining southern portion of the project area. Next week, RPC plans to continue grading and the installation of the stone base in the remaining portions of the project prior to pouring sidewalks during the week of May 13th. RPC will also be completing some final punch-list items on the northern portion of the project.
Dominion Energy has completed a substantial amount of boring in preparation for the relocation of an underground power line running in front of Town Hall southward through the Osprey Landing Shopping Center. Dominion plans to complete its line work next week and tie in the new lines during the week of May 13th.
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 II construction has an expected completion date sometime in May.
