N.C. Coastal Highways Vulnerability

Record #:
A study by the North Carolina State University Center for Transportation determined that thirty-five miles of highways on North Carolina’s Outer Banks are vulnerable to service disruption from coastal erosion, wave overwash, sand deposits, flooding, or undermining. Maintaining transportation service by relocation, beach nourishment, causeway construction, or shoreline hardening will cost the state $99 million between 1990 and 2010.
