Concerned cyclists clean hazardous section of N.C. 179

Local bicyclists concerned about safety got out their shovels and brooms last week to do their own roadwork.

Paul Dordal, Dave Weller and Dan Dickerson took matters into their own hands after officials with the North Carolina Department of Transportation said the state agency wasn’t responsible for maintaining what the three deemed a particularly hazardous stretch of shoulder along N.C. 179, aka Beach Drive, just south of Shallotte.
