As traffic grows on Currituck County roads, county government is taking steps to protect pedestrians and connect communities. The just-released “Connect Currituck” study envisions multi-use paths along Caratoke Highway on the Mainland and NC 12 on the Outer Banks according to Jeff Hampton of the Virginian Pilot.

Connect Currituck envisions an extensive network of multi-use paths connecting communities.

“Gabrielle Starboard wanted to buy eggs for a Mother’s Day breakfast, which meant she had to venture across busy U.S. 158 from her Walnut Island neighborhood to reach the supermarket.

She waited several minutes for a break in the weekend traffic before scooting across the five-lane thoroughfare.

A speeding car whooshed just behind her as she reached the other side.”

“I felt the wind as it went by,” she said.

 

With Caratoke Highway bisecting the county, Currituck is planning a multi-use path from Virginia to the Outer Banks according to the Virginian Pilot.
