currituck greenway takes giant step
Following the contours of the land, Section III of the Currituck County’s plan to have a greenway path from the end of the paved road to the County line has been completed. The just completed path means pedestrians and bike riders will not have to use the shoulder on one of the most dangerous stretches of NC12 between Timbuck II and Harris Teeter. Dee Langston gives details of the new path and what the future holds in her story for the Outer Banks Voice.
“Currituck has completed another section of the Corolla Greenway, part of a bike and pedestrian path that the county hopes will eventually stretch from the county line on the Outer Banks to the ramp at the end of the paved road in Corolla.
Phase III of the greenway is now open. It extends from the south end of Section A in Ocean Sands North to the Monteray Shopping Plaza at Albacore Street.
The 3-mile, multi-use path runs alongside N.C. 12 in Corolla, and will allow residents and visitors to walk or bike between shopping areas without having to go onto N.C. 12, project manager Eileen Wirth explained.
“This was an important part of the plan because of the number of people traveling between Harris Teeter and Food Lion,” she said. “It will alleviate people having to walk on the shoulders (of N.C. 12).”
