Eastbound Wright Memorial Bridge Reopens to Traffic

Today the N.C. Department of Transportation reopened the eastbound side of the Wright Memorial Bridge between Currituck and Dare counties on U.S. Highway 158. However, single-lane closures on both sides of the bridge will continue for the next few days as crews complete lane striping work. The bridge will be completely open for all weekend summer traffic no later than Monday, May 14.

On weekdays (Mondays-Thursdays) during the summer months, motorists can expect periodic single lane closures on the eastbound side of the bridge while contractors complete maintenance on the bridge's substructure.

The work is part of an overall $21 million project to refurbish the Wright Memorial Bridge. The project is funded by an initiative designed to improve the conditions and increase the lifespans of high value bridges across the state.
