Citizens in Corolla should be aware that the beach access walkovers located at Barracuda, Perch, and Sailfish streets are temporarily closed due to construction. These three walkovers are in the process of being completely replaced. Construction of all three is scheduled to be completed by Memorial Day.
This represents the first phase of a long-term project by Currituck County to replace 13 aging beach walkovers in Corolla. These walkovers provide a safe avenue for pedestrians walking to the beach. All construction work will be done outside of the traditional tourist season of Memorial Day to Labor Day, to minimize the impact on beach visitors. In the project’s next phase, scheduled to begin in October, the county plans to replace the walkovers at Coral, Dolphin, and Mackerel streets.
