Currituck County’s Corolla Greenway wins Mobi Award

By on April 9, 2019

On April 3, 2019, Currituck County was announced as one of five winners of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s inaugural Mobi Awards, for the county’s development of the Corolla Greenway multi-use path.

The Mobi Awards were created to honor towns, cities and counties throughout the state for completing projects that incorporate different modes of transportation, to make local travel easier and more efficient.

​​Winners were chosen in five categories: rural, suburban, urban, tourism, and innovation. The Corolla Greenway was selected as the winner in the Suburban category.

The Corolla Greenway is a paved path, running 4.5 miles along NC 12 on the Outer Banks. The Greenway is 10′ wide, fully ADA-accessible, and includes pocket parks along its route.

Along with providing opportunity for healthy recreation, the path allows pedestrians and cyclists to safely move along NC 12, and connects neighborhoods to destinations such as shopping and beach access points.

Construction of the Corolla Greenway has been completed in phases. The Mobi Award specifically recognized phase three of the Greenway construction, which connected Ocean Sands to Monterey Plaza.

A project to extend the Greenway an additional mile is currently underway, and will be completed this spring.

For further information regarding the Corolla Greenway, please contact Eileen Wirth, Project Coordinator, at 252-232-2075.
