State transportation officials will host an online meeting 6 p.m. March 4 to give updates on the Rodanthe “Jug Handle” bridge project currently under construction.
During the meeting, North Carolina Department of Transportation officials and project engineers will provide an update on the project’s progress and answer questions.
The bridge is a long-term transportation solution for N.C. 12 estimated to cost $145.33 million. The project is to raise the highway onto a 2.4-mile bridge that extends over Pamlico Sound between the southern end of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge and Rodanthe, according to NCDOT.
The bridge is due for completion in late 2021 or early 2022.
