Living Shoreline and Resiliency project to continue next week in Duck – OBX Today


Fred Smith Company is not performing any construction work this week in observance of the holidays. They will resume work next week.

Additionally, beginning after January 1, 2024, Fred Smith will transition a 24-hour, 5-day work week (Sunday evening through Friday evening). This accelerated schedule aims to complete the roadway construction portion of the Living Shoreline and Resiliency Project. Single lane closures will occur during this time. The Town has addressed concerns regarding lighting and noise impacts with Fred Smith. They will be using directional lights pointed westward over the Currituck Sound, reducing light pollution affecting nearby residents. Additionally, Fred Smith has committed to the implementation of noise mitigation strategies.
