State of Things
Thu December 6, 2012
In the past two years alone, it has cost the state and federal governments more than $22 million to repair Highway 12. The iconic road on North Carolina's Outer Banks is a lifeline for permanent residents and an economic boon to the region and the state during tourism season. But the shifting sands of the barrier islands may make a permanent road impossible in the near future.
Host Frank Stasio discusses the future of Highway 12 with Allen Burrus, a Dare county commissioner and business-owner on Hatteras Island; Rob Young, Director of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University and a professor of geology; and Derb Carter, attorney at the Southern Environmental Law Center.
