on Bonner Bridge next week
travelling the southern portion of Highway 12 in Dare County next week
can expect to see a flurry of activity as crews with the N.C.
Department of Transportation conduct necessary work following Hurricane

July 14, through Thursday, July 17. The closure is necessary to
allow crews to safely take some samples as part of the department’s
ongoing monitoring of the bridge.
today and planned for all next week, NCDOT crews will be removing large
amounts of the marsh grass within the right of way that was washed up
during the storm surge.
also will be working to rebuild the dunes along Highway 12 between
the south ferry dock and the Pony Pens on Ocracoke Island. This work
will be ongoing for two to three weeks, depending on the weather.
of Thursday evening, July 10, two lanes of traffic are now open on the
northern end of Pea Island at the temporary bridge. A permanent bridge
is under construction at this location, and an on-site detour is being
built to limit disruption to traffic during the construction.
the on-site detour is paved, the section damaged by Hurricane Arthur
will also be repaved. That work will likely take place in the next
couple weeks. NCDOT placed gravel at the damaged location to quickly
restore traffic after the storm.
