KURE BEACH - Crews working for S.T. Wooten Company are paving Highway 421 in Kure Beach. The project will continue north to the area at the entrance of the Carolina Sands neighborhood.
The project contract is for $671,573.74 and will repave the road known as South Lake Park Blvd in Carolina Beach and Fort Fisher Blvd in Kure Beach.
Crews with S. T. Wooten Corporation began work in February with completion of the project by May 15th, 2015.
The road has been milled up and resurfaced from Carolina Sands Drive in Carolina Beach south to Avenue E in Kure Beach. A distance of 2.52 miles.
Crews have been stopping traffic at times because the road is reduced to one lane while crews put down a new layer of asphalt.
This has led to north and southbound traffic delays with many local residents using nearby residential streets to avoid waiting in lines of vehicles.
This project follows completion of new sidewalks last year along K Avenue as well as repaving of that street intersecting with Fort Fisher Blvd in downtown Kure Beach. Additionally, K Avenue east of Fort Fisher Blvd was repaved with new sidewalks, landscaping and placement of utility lines underground helping to improve the visual appearance of the streetscape.
Combined with the Town's new oceanfront park and pavilion, Kure Beach's road infrastructure has seen major improvements in recent years.
Town officials are confident the upcoming project on U.S. 421 will not entirely block traffic, but some delays and detours can be expected at times.
