The reality of a replacement for the aging Bonner Bridge becomes more certain every day. As reported in the Outer Banks Voice, the National Park Service signing off on the a Record of Decision for the new bridge, may not seem significant, but it is an important step nonetheless.
“Another small step in the long path to replacing the 52-year old Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet has been taken, after the National Park Service announced it has given its approval of the proposed parallel span.
The Department of the Interior released its Record of Decision on Monday, adopting the final Environmental Impact Statement issued in 2008 and the 2010 Environmental Assessment of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s plan for the replacement and demolition of the current span.”
