State transportation officials and project engineers will provide an update on the progress and answer questions on the Rodanthe “jug handle” bridge project, which is under construction on the Outer Banks.
The meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m. March 5 at the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Community Center, 23186 Myrna Peters Road, Rodanthe.
A long-term transportation solution to severe storms that cause breaches on N.C. 12 according to the state Department of Transportation, the 2.4-mile Rodanthe bridge extends over the Pamlico Sound between the southern end of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge and Rodanthe.
After the bridge is completed, which is expected to be in fall 2021, the current N.C. 12 at the southern end of the refuge will be removed and the land returned to its natural state.
