Southern Shores  Trial “No-Left Turn Event”

The Southern Shores Town Council decided to implement a trial “No-left Turn Event” for eastbound traffic at the intersection of US Highway 158 and South Dogwood Trail from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on both Saturday June 23 and Sunday June 24, 2018. The Town contracted to have appropriate traffic devices, in this case barrels, placed so as to block the eastbound left-turn lane during these hours. The devices were monitored on-site throughout the day by the contractor, and  placed out prior to 8:00 AM pulled up after 6:00 PM of each day. With the concurrence of the Town of Kitty Hawk and the Kitty Hawk Police Department, the Southern Shores Police Department were onsite at the terminus of South Dogwood Trail observing the traffic and enforcing traffic laws, with a zero-tolerance enforcement policy for vehicle drivers ignoring the “No-left turn” restriction and transiting onto S. Dogwood Trail from the eastbound lane of US Highway 158.
