•    Project Area 11: Nags Head Cove Subdivision in the proximity of Pompano Ct.: This area has experienced standing water due to lack of drainage infrastructure, high groundwater, and no available drainage outlet. Drainage improvements will be complementary to the new multi-use pathway and include the construction of curb and gutter along with a new storm pipe network.   The dual nature of this construction will not only economize construction costs but minimize the disturbance to the public through a condensed construction time period.  Current project status: Drainage improvements have been coupled with the proposed multi-use path design. Bids were received on Tuesday February 11, 2019 and the Board of Commissioners will consider the lowest responsive, responsible bid proposal  at the next Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday February 18th at 1pm. Construction is estimated to commence in early March.

•    Project Area 12: S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd., MP 19.5: This area along S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd. is low-lying and becomes inundated following significant rainfall events. The project goal is to reduce the frequency of flooding in addition to the depth of floodwaters. Scheduled drainage improvements consist of an infiltration trench catchment network along east side of S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd. These efforts will improve effective storage below existing ground level. Current project status:  Bid proposals were received on Thursday January 30, 2020.  The Board of Commissioners will consider the lowest responsive, responsible bid proposal  at the next Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday February 18th at 1pm. Construction is estimated to commence in early March.

•    Project Area 13: S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd., MP 17.5: Sections of S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd. and the surrounding low-lying areas area frequently flooded following significant rainfall events. The low-lying topography in combination with the lack of a drainage outfall are currently the limiting factors in providing a conventional solution to this issue. Scheduled drainage improvements consist of an infiltration trench catchment network along the east side of S. Old Oregon Inlet Rd. in association with a pump station for downstream conveyance to an infiltration area. The project goal is to reduce floodwater depths and improve dewatering times for localized flooding. Current project status:  Bid proposals were received on Thursday January 30, 2020.  The Board of Commissioners will consider the lowest responsive, responsible bid proposal  at the next Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday February 18th at 1pm. Construction is estimated to commence in early March.
