The southbound detour will begin at Ramp 44 off of Lighthouse Road at the Cape Hatteras Light Station in Buxton. The northbound detour will begin at Ramp 49 off Billy Mitchell Road in Frisco. The detour will be clearly marked from N.C. 12 and along the detour route in both directions. Motorists using the detour should follow the posted speed and directional signage.

Representatives from the contracting company, Coastal Science and Engineering and the dredging company, Weeks Marine, will present an overview of the project followed by a question and answer session. Staff members from Dare County and the National Park Service will be in attendance to answer questions and review the “More Beach to Love” website that will be the go-to source for updated information about the project, once construction begins.
