After being delayed for one year, work is ready to begin on upgrading protection of N.C. 12 from flooding by the Currituck Sound along the north end of Duck village.
The Duck Road coastal resiliency project was held up to 2023-24 as funding from the federal government and permitting for the project were pending final reviews last fall.
The project is designed to mitigate shoreline erosion which causes roadway flooding on N.C. 12 around the former Resort Realty building and Sunset Grille.
Travelers should anticipate lane closures in the work zone through the fall and winter. More details about the project can be found at https://www.townofduck.com/living-shoreline-and-resiliency-project/.
