Contract Awarded for Repair a washed-out section of N.C. 12 in Kitty Hawk

Contract Award Date : Oct 2015

The project, which should be finished by the middle of December, according to a North Carolina Department of Transportation statement.

N.C. 12 has been closed between Kitty Hawk Road and Lillian Street since Oct. 5 after a lingering coastal storm and heavy surf from distant Hurricane Joaquin wiped out 700 feet of dunes and the pavement collapsed.

Crews will reconstruct the dune by installing sandbags 8 feet below the edge of pavement and covering them with sand. All told, 375 sandbags, each 10 feet long, will be put into place, the statement said.

The new dune will connect a sandbag dune constructed earlier this summer and another 200 feet to the north that was built using sandbags in 2003 and extended in 2004 after Hurricane Isabel.

Crews will also repave the damaged section and install new sand fencing. Sea grass will be planted in the spring.
