KDH announces temporary closure of NC 12 for culvert repair

 A section of NC 12 in Kill Devil Hills will be closed to through traffic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 5 to replace a failing culvert pipe. The pipe is located at MP 8.5, #710 Virginia Dare Trail, more specifically in front of the shops where the Thai Room restaurant is located. Access to all shops and rental properties will be maintained during the installation project.

      The heavy rains and high stormwater flows of the past month have further degraded a severely failing culvert pipe under NC 12 in Kill Devil Hills. This pipe is part of the Baum Street Ocean outfall system and is critical to the efficient drainage in this area. The condition of this culvert pipe has deteriorated to the point where immediate replacement must take place as soon as possible.

      A detour route has been identified and will be signed for travel around the construction area.

Project questions can be directed to Jeff Ryder or Michael Proctor at 252-473-2990.
