Public Meeting Regarding Colington Road

Post Date:06/12/2017 12:24 p.m.

From NCDOT ---

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed improvements to Colington Road (S.R. 1217) on June 29, 2017 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Kill Devil Hills Town Hall - Commissioners Meeting Room, located at 102 Town Hall Drive.

Improvements proposed for Colington Road vary along the roadway.  From the end of Colington Road to Colington Drive, proposed improvements are limited to repaving the road.  From Colington Drive to Baum Bay Drive, Colington Road will be widened to two 11-foot travel lanes with 10-foot shoulders (7-foot paved) on each side to accommodate bicycles.  In addition, the road will be raised in areas to reduce flooding. From Baum Bay Drive to just east of Veterans Drive, proposed improvements are again limited to repaving the road.  From this point to the U.S. 158 intersection, the proposed typical section on Colington Road includes 11-foot travel lanes, as well as two 11-foot left-turn lanes and an 11-foot right-turn lane eastbound at the U.S. 158 intersection.  The proposed project is about 4.3 miles long.

The purpose of the project is to reduce roadway flooding and improve the operation and safety of Colington Road.

The public may attend at any time during the hours mentioned above. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and discuss the proposed project. Opportunities to submit written comments will be provided at the meeting. Comments may also be submitted via phone, email, or mail by July 14, 2017. Comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops. Please note that no formal presentation will be made.
