Currituck cuts ribbon on new Public Works facility

Currituck County celebrated the construction of a new Public Works facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 5, 2023. Members of the Board of Commissioners were joined by county staff and other visitors to tour the building and talk with the project development team.

The facility provides much-needed storage, maintenance, and office space for the Public Works Department. It features garage bays on each end, staff offices, meeting rooms, and a customer service area. It is located in Maple, next to the Currituck Regional Airport terminal.

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining 57 county-owned buildings, more than 11 miles of walkways, five beach access ramps, and lighting and signage for all county buildings and parking lots. Staff also manages the county’s solid waste and recycling convenience centers. Public Works staff also secure buildings ahead of incoming storms and respond with facility and grounds cleanup after emergencies.

Special thanks goes to the project development team, consisting of the Currituck County Engineering Department, Sussex Development Corporation, Beacon Architecture, and Eastern Carolina Construction, for brining this project to completion.
