The Currituck Ferry Welcome Center located in Currituck County, NC, was unveiled Wednesday August 17th, 2016. This newer facility replaces the smaller and outdated one that was built in 1985. It contains vending machines, restrooms, and displays information on the Currituck heritage for travelers to see.
Construction of a new $2 million Welcome Center for the Currituck-Knotts Island ferry is about to begin and is expected to be completed in early 2016. A federal grant will pay eighty percent, with the remaining twenty percent of the cost funded by the state. The new, larger Welcome Center will include a Currituck historical exhibit area, restrooms and offices, and will be replacing an outdated and undersized facility.
This is the second NCDOT project that A. R. Chesson Construction has participated in the past two years. The NCDOT HWY-17 Rest Area Building near Chocowinity, NC is nearing completion.
