Planning Underway for Islander Drive Streetscape Improvements, Western Ocean Regional Access Improvements


Town officials are currently working with adjacent property owners on Islander Drive, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative, and others to identify potential streetscape improvements along Islander Drive and potential improvements to the Western Ocean Regional Access.  These improvements will primarily be funded with proceeds from the sale of Town-owned land on Islander Drive and State grant funds.  

Potential improvements under consideration include the conversion of above-ground utilities to underground, additional on-street public parking, new street lighting, landscaping improvements, improved pedestrian access to the beach strand, bath house improvements, and other functional and attractive improvements.  The Town hopes to finalize the planned improvements later this summer, and construct the improvements this coming winter and spring, with completion prior to the 2019 tourism season.
