Pavement preservation work at the Frisco Campground. (Cape Hatteras National Seashore)

On Oct. 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.

    Hope they do a better job with the road than the tar and chip crap they’re using in the parking lots!
