Traffic study and parking plan for waterpark now available

A number of citizens in Currituck County have expressed concern to the Board of Commissioners regarding possible traffic impacts on Highway 158 from the opening of the H2OBX Waterpark in Powell's Point.  Prior to granting site plan approval, the Board of Commissioners required the waterpark's developers to submit a Traffic Impact Analysis and Parking Plan. This document is now available for public review:

Traffic Impact Analysis and Parking Plan

The North Carolina Department of Transportation completed a review of this traffic analysis and did not recommend that a traffic signal be installed at the entrance to the waterpark from Hwy. 158.  A deceleration lane will be added to the entrance as part of improvements to the access.  NCDOT stated that once the waterpark is open, the need for any additional improvements can be evaluated.
