Wawa Submits Site Plan to KDH City
By Michelle Wagner | Outer Banks Voice on March 14, 2022
Wawa, Inc. has submitted a commercial site plan to the City of Kill Devil Hills requesting permission to build one of its popular gas stations and convenience stores at 1900 N. Croatan Highway, located on the west side of the highway just south of BB&T and across from the old Kmart.
Kill Devil Hills Deputy Director of Planning Cameron Ray told The Voice in an email that the application was submitted by Arista Development on Wawa’s behalf and included a 6,000 square foot Wawa convenience store, awning with gas pumps and 53 parking spaces. Wawa is popular for its made-to-order meals, freshly brewed coffee, hot breakfast sandwiches, and other Wawa-branded items.
Wawa, Inc.’s external public relations supervisor, Jennifer Wolf, confirmed that the company has its eye on Kill Devil Hills as well as other locations in North Carolina, with the opening of the first stores of by the end of 2024. Wawa has more than 850 convenience stores, 600 of them offering gasoline, in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C., but n currently has no location in North Carolina.
“We are thrilled to confirm that we are expanding in North Carolina,” Wolf said in an email to The Voice. “While we cannot confirm specific locations or construction timelines at this stage in the process, we can say that we are actively seeking potential sites for new Wawa stores in North Carolina, including Kill Devil Hills,” said she declared.
In January, Wawa came to Kill Devil Hills to request a waiver for primary access to US 158 at the same site. This request was denied by the Kill Devil Hills Board of Adjustment because city code requires that corner lots along US 158 have driveway access on the side street rather than on the freeway with the aim of minimizing driveways along the freeway.
Wawa’s current site plan was submitted on February 28 and is currently being reviewed by staff. Deputy Director of Planning Ray said he will likely go to the Kill Devil Hills Planning Board in April for review and then to the Board of Commissioners in May.
Wawa, the website says, is a Native American word for the Canada goose that was found in the Delaware Valley over 100 years ago. The original Wawa Dairy Farm was also built in 1902 on land located in the rural area of Pennsylvania called Wawa.
For his part, Wolf concluded, “We look forward to serving the community with our fresh, quality food and beverages and, as always, our deep commitment to the communities in which we operate.

NC- INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – ALBAMARLE
SOUND TO NEUSE RIVER ALLIGATOR RIVERSECOND CREEK-ALLIGATOR RIVER
All interested parties are advised that the Coast Guard Fifth District Commander has received a proposal from the North Carolina Department of Transportation, with plans for modifying a
existing drawbridge over a United States waterway.
WATERWAY AND LOCATION: Alligator River, Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Mile 84.2, in Columbia, North Carolina.
CHARACTER OF WORK: The proposed project is to replace the 2.83 mile long 2-lane swing-span drawbridge with a two-lane high-rise fixed bridge on a new alignment of approximately
2,000 feet north of the existing bridge. The objective of the project is to replace a bridge that is structurally deficient and undergoing significant deterioration, due to its age, and to avoid having to carry out
thorough maintenance of obsolete mining machinery.
The existing drawbridge has a horizontal clearance of 100 feet on each side of the swing span and a vertical clearance of 14 feet above mean high water in the closed position and unlimited vertical clearance in the open position. The replacement bridge will be a fixed bridge with a horizontal clearance of 140 feet and a vertical clearance of 65 feet above mean high water.
A copy of Preliminary Public Notice D05PPN-02-2022, which describes the proposal in detail, can be obtained by calling (757) 398-6222 or by visiting https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/ ?pageName=pnBridges . Comments on this proposal should be sent to the address indicated in the notice no later than April 01, 2022.
