Familiar Scene When Winds in the Forecast
Traffic on the 158 bypass can be a little crazy this time of year. Many vehicles on the road, and especially crazy though Kill Devil Hills. Many times, I redirect to the Beach Road (Rt 12) to bypass the heavy traffic though "Hamburger Alley," which is the strip of fast food resturaunts joined by about three traffic lights within a few hundred feet in Kill Devil Hills.
Good luck in the traffic though the OBX "city" (Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and North Nags Head), but once you pass Jockey's Ridge, things begin to clear. Though if heading south on Rt 12 though Pea Island National Refuge, nothing better than being stuck by a truck pulling a 22 ft camper... when winds are blowing 25 knots!
