The current 2018-2027 STIP did include funding for incremental improvements to the NC 58 / Bogue Inlet Drive intersection, and NCDOT has been soliciting input and evaluating different options for the past several months. Options currently under consideration include traffic signal improvements, additional turn lanes and through lanes, driveway adjustments, and a roundabout, and NCDOT expects to refine the potential options in the next few months and then schedule public input sessions later this year.
After receiving public input and additional input from the Board of Commissioners, NCDOT will then consider the best course forward at that time. (A similar process will be used for other NC 58 intersections in Emerald Isle if they are ultimately included in the new 2020-2029 STIP discussed above.) Any new improvements at the NC 58 / Bogue Inlet Drive intersection could potentially be constructed in the next 2 - 4 years, depending on State funding availability.
