The North Carolina Department of Transportation is conducting a paving project on South Croatan Highway in Nags Head during winter and spring 2023. Please keep this in mind when traveling the road and be sure to slow down to ensure everyone's safety.
February 10, 2023 Update
The NC Department of Transportation, along with The Fred Smith Company, intend to close South Croatan Highway/US 158 in both directions at Nags Head's town hall and fire station (5400 block of South Croatan Highway) starting Monday, February 13.

The northbound traffic will remain detoured to South Virginia Dare Trail until the crossing is complete.
**The locations of detours and scheduling of closures are subject to change.
All work is expected to be complete by the end of the day Friday, February 17.
