Both Lanes of NC 12 to Be Closed for Two Weeks Starting October 28, 2019

Paving Project to Close NC 12 in Cape Hatteras National Seashore for Two Weeks

On October 28, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will begin a pavement preservation project that will place a layer of asphalt pavement overlay on top of the existing pavement along a 4.5 mile stretch of North Carolina Highway 12 (NC 12). The project will begin at the north entrance to Cape Hatteras National Seashore and end at the entrance of State Road 1243 (South Old Oregon Inlet Road). Both lanes of NC 12 will be closed during this phase of the pavement preservation project.

The asphalt overlay protects and lengthens the life of the existing pavement along NC 12.

Southbound and northbound vehicles will be detoured to South Old Oregon Inlet Road (State Road 1243) to minimize traffic delays associated with the project. The detour route is anticipated to be in place for approximately two weeks.

In April 2019, the FHWA began a one year project to preserve approximately 43 miles of  paved roads and parking areas within Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial. The contractor for the $6.9 million project is Bryant’s Land & Development Industries, Inc. from Burnsville, North Carolina.


Cape Hatteras National Seashore  publishes pavement preservation progress updates, notifications of temporary construction closures, and project photos at: http://go.nps.gov/obg_pavement.

***For those of you who may be traveling on South Old Oregon Inlet Road during the NC 12 closure, please:

  • allow for extra drive time
  • obey the speed limit
  • be patient
  • watch for traffic entering and exiting the roadway from side streets and driveways
  • be alert for pedestrian and bike traffic. 


Outside Westbound Lane of Melvin Daniels Bridge Closed for Roadway Repair

Outside Westbound Lane of Melvin Daniels Bridge Closed for Roadway Repair

From a NC Department of Transportation News Release - Recently discovered damage from Hurricane Dorian has prompted the N.C. Department of Transportation to close the outside westbound lane of U.S. 64 over the Melvin Daniels Bridge between Nags Head and Manteo.
Storm surge from the Sept. 6 hurricane washed out some of the supporting material underneath the lane. The void underneath the roadway will need to be filled before the lane can be secured and reopened. Repairs are expected to be complete early next week.
 
The fishing catwalk on the north side of the bridge remains open, but a 50-foot section at the eastern end of the catwalk will be closed for safety.
