Pedestrian Plan Phase III Update

Millstone Marine Construction continued to work on the retaining wall between Cook Drive and Duck Deli last week.  Weather permitting, they should complete the wall this week.
The  stretch of concrete sidewalk from Dune Road to Cook Drive has been completed and RPC is working on clean up and grading of the areas that have been completed. This is expected to continue this week.  RPC may also begin demolition of the asphalt aprons while Millstone completes the retaining wall. 

The northbound travel lane may be closed at times with traffic being stopped or diverted 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.
