NCDOT to begin highway paving project in Nags Head

By on January 20, 2023

(Town of Nags Head)

On Jan. 19, the Town of Nags Head announced this pending paving project that will stretch into the spring and will have impacts on traffic. Here are the details.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is conducting a paving project on South Croatan Highway in Nags Head during winter and spring 2023. Please keep this in mind when traveling the road and be sure to slow down to ensure everyone’s safety.

The improvements include installing new pavement and replacing drainage pipes at West Oak Knoll Drive, Baltic Street, and in front of Nags Head’s town hall.

Prior to paving, the highway’s shoulders will be scraped ahead of milling and filling, which prepares the road for new pavement.

Shoulder scraping will take place first, progressing north from Whalebone Junction (the intersection of the highway with South Virginia Dare Trail and US 64). This work may take several weeks to complete. Outer lane closures are expected in the work zones.

At the beginning of February, work to replace the drainage pipes is expected to begin, proceeding from north to south. Traffic patterns for each of the work areas will be provided in advance of construction.

A start date for the mill and fill part of the project has not yet been finalized due to the work requiring warmer weather for the paving. Work is expected to begin around Gray Eagle Street and progress north.

    The work they did on the bypass through about MP 6 was great. Doing this will help the southern end-hopefully they will finish what is also in between. The bypass has needed work for years-it is good to see it. But it all needs to be completed.
