The news is that the traffic pattern was shifted at the south end of
the Bonner replacement to make room for construction of the new
southern approach. On July 25, crews drove the first pilings that
will support that elevated roadway.
According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, as of Aug. 1, there
were 30 pilings that have been driven in the water and nine on land.
Also, progress continues to be made on the interim bridge on Pea Island
that will replace the smaller, temporary bridge that was quickly
erected over an inlet cut by Hurricane Irene in 2011.
Work crews on the interim bridge have completed the installation of
nine spans that will support the superstructure over Pea Island Inlet.
NCDOT reminds travelers to slow down and use caution at both work sites and to be aware that night road closures are possible.
One-lane road closures are possible between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday until Sept. 15.
Full road closures are possible for 30 minutes at a time between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Friday until Sept. 15.
