bonner bridge maintenance work to start early 2015
The Bonner Bridge is a key connection on the Outer Banks, so we’re always happy to bring you news updates from the N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) confirming that maintenance work will begin in the new year, but will not close the bridge to traffic.
“The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded contracts for two maintenance projects on the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, which carries N.C. 12 over the Oregon Inlet in Dare County. Work on each project will begin in early 2015. Additional information regarding the exact dates of the work will be available once schedules are finalized. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by mid- June 2015.
The bridge will remain open to traffic during these projects with only a single lane closure in place. Both directions of traffic will be guided through the work site with either flagmen or automated traffic control measures.
Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.”
