NCDOT contractors will begin
major deck maintenance work on the Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge (U.S. Highway
64 Bypass) across Croatan Sound beginning Monday, Oct. 23. The work, which will
extend the life of the bridge, will include concrete deck repairs, concrete
crack sealing, and new pavement markings.
The work is scheduled to begin
with the Monday-Thursday closures of the eastbound lanes between Oct. 23 and
Nov. 15. Once that work is complete, work on the westbound lanes will close that
side of the bridge Monday-Thursday from Nov. 15-Dec 13. Traffic will be routed
to a detour along U.S. 64 through Manns Harbor and Manteo across the William B.
The Virginia Dare Memorial
Bridge will be open to all traffic on weekends between Friday at 6 a.m. and
Sunday at 10 p.m., and closures will have no affect on traffic during the Outer
Banks Marathon on Nov. 12.
