Background
In 2014 the Town of Nags Head completed a pedestrian plan that recommended a prioritized list of pedestrian projects. To date, the town has completed the portion from Eight Street to Hollowell Street. (Phases 1-7) Looking forward, the projects south of Jockeys Ridge State Park are the highest ranked projects from the pedestrian plan and recent FOCUS Nags Head project. The upcoming project phases include the planned construction of a 10’ wide multi-use path from Soundside Rd. to W. Danube Street and a 6’ wide sidewalk connection from Deering St. north to Dune St. (Phase 8A). A second phase will combine two separate lengths of pathway into a single phase of construction, (Phase 8B). Improvements includes the construction of a 10’ wide concrete multi-use pathway with associative grading, drainage and incidental work spanning along the western extents of S. Croatan Hwy. from W. Danube St to Epstein St., and from W. Baymeadow Dr. to Gull Street.
