The Town of Nags Head repairs and resurfaces municipal streets on an as-needed basis using North Carolina's Powell Bill Program supplemented with the Town of Nags Head's General Fund when needed.
The current Powell Bill Map (PDF) identifies streets by maintenance responsibility and whether or not they were added during the previous fiscal year. The Powell Bill program is administered by North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and provides funding based on center-line miles of municipal streets within the corporate limits regardless of the number of lanes.
