The Town of Southern Shores “Exploratory Committee to address Cut-Thru Traffic” will meet to hear a report from the Town’s traffic consultant on Thursday, December 10 at 3 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is for the committee to hear a progress report from the consultant hired by the town to examine previously collected traffic data and to perform a review of roadways affected by cut-thru traffic to determine recommended mitigation strategies.

The presentation will include the approach taken by the consultant to examine, analysis and model the traffic data provided by the town and NCDOT.

The consultant will not be presenting any findings or recommendations at this time and no public comment will be taken.

The final report is expected to be completed and delivered to the town in mid-February.
