The North Carolina Department of Transportation is holding a virtual information meeting 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 4, on the ongoing Rodanthe “Jug Handle” bridge project.
During the meeting, NCDOT officials and project engineers will provide an update on the project’s progress and answer questions. The construction work that’s planned during the next month can be found on the NCDOT website.
The department describes the Rodanthe Bridge currently under construction on the Outer Banks as a long-term transportation solution for N.C. 12, which is being raised onto a 2.4-mile bridge that 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 in fall 2021, the existing N.C. 12 road at the southern end of the refuge will be removed and the land returned to its natural state.
The meeting is being held virtually due to recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19.
