Within the next month, nearly 40 new interpretative exhibits will be installed along the 138 driving miles of the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway.
The installation is the long-awaited culmination of the byway’s way-showing and interpretive exhibit program funded by grants from the National Scenic Byway Program of the Federal Highway Administration and the byway counties, Carteret, Hyde and Dare.
Local representatives have been involved in this effort over the years, assisting the Albemarle & Associates team in planning, researching, designing and overseeing the installation of these long-term exhibits as well as the previous project installing route guide, entrance and destination signs.
During the week of May 4, the byway is hosting three training sessions to discuss the new exhibits.
The presentations, which are all the same, will be by video conference, using GoToMeetings.
