Update: Due to the closure of N.C. Highway 12 on Hatteras Island, trash collection that would normally take place on Tuesday, Sept. 22 will now take place on Wednesday, Sept. 23 in the residential areas of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo and Avon.
Monday 8 a.m.: NC12 remains CLOSED between the Basnight Bridge and Rodanthe, as well as on Ocracoke between the pony pens and the ferry terminal. Last night’s high tide was the most severe of the event so far, with water and deep sand on several portions of roadway. Our crews are currently starting clearing operations, but the next two high tide cycles are forecast to produce similar results. At this point, we expect these portions of NC12 to remain closed until Tuesday (Sept. 22) afternoon.
