As Town of Duck proceeds with its application for significant funding through FEMA’s Building Resilient Infrastructure & Communities (BRIC) grant program, the Town’s consulting engineers with VHB are under contract and have started the process of preparing preliminary engineering, design, and project information for the BRIC grant application.
The proposed improvements include living shoreline (marsh restoration/shoreline stabilization) improvements along the Currituck Sound adjoining N.C. Highway 12, a sidewalk on the west side of N.C. Highway 12, and elevation of this very low section of N.C. Highway 12 – all intended to improve the function and resiliency of this stretch of N.C. Highway 12 through the northern section of Duck Village.
Beginning November 13, 2020, and for the following 4 – 6 weeks, various activities will occur in the proposed project area. These include utility locations, soil borings, water table measurements, surveying, and other related work.
For more information regarding the BRIC grant application and proposed work, view the presentation to the Town Council on October 7, 2020.
