EMERALD ISLE, N.C. (WITN) - The town of Emerald Isle is unveiling one of its latest projects as it works on developing another.

The town has reopened Islander Drive after construction over the winter.

It has a new road surface, curbs, parking spaces, and sidewalks. Now, construction is underway for Village West.

The commercial development will be located across from Western Regional Ocean Beach Access.

Retail Stores will be on the first floor and residential units on the second.

Emerald Isle Town Manager Matt Zapp says, “This will be a convenience to those that are visiting, for the residents, and part-time residents that live and reside in that area. For example, there may be commercial food on the first floor, there may other services and or other conveniences. All that is part of the future development.”

Part of Islander Drive is now a one-way street. The road leads to the Western Regional Ocean Beach Access.

That parking lot reopened with new outdoor showers, concrete, and wooden sidewalks.
