NAGS HEAD, N.C. (AP) - The town of Nags Head has scheduled a public hearing on its plans to close a road that’s now owned more by the Atlantic Ocean than the town.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Virginia, reported (http://bit.ly/1MBwNag) the public hearing about plans to close Seagull Drive will be held Thursday.

Nags Head has spent thousands of dollars over the last decade on what once was a paved two-lane road about 500 feet long with a row of high-end houses on each side.

But the surf destroyed the asphalt a long time ago. The road now is just a narrow, sandy path.

One homeowner on the west side is protesting the closure. Homeowner Lucas Munn says abandoning the road to the elements will degrade the area.
