November 16th, 2023

Groundbreaking took place Tuesday for a $3.2 million project that will construct an approximately 1.25 mile-long, 10 to 12-foot-wide paved multi-use pathway from the intersection of N.C. 12 and Lighthouse Road in Buxton to the Cape Hatteras Light Station and Old Lighthouse Beach Access.

Construction of the multi-use pathway is intended to improve visitor safety along the busy park road, and provide a direct walking and biking connection to the path that runs alongside N.C. 12 through the village of Buxton.

The project is being paid for in-part by direct contributions from Cape Hatteras Electrical Cooperative, the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, REAL Watersports, Carolina Brewery and Vacasa, along with donations to Outer Banks Forever, the seashore’s non-profit support organization.
