Recently discovered damage from Hurricane Dorian has prompted the N.C. Department of Transportation to close the outside westbound lane of U.S. 64 over the Melvin Daniels Bridge, also known as the Little Bridge, between Nags Head and Manteo.
According to NCDOT, storm surge from the Sept. 6 hurricane washed out some of the supporting material underneath the lane. The void underneath the roadway will need to be filled before the lane can be secured and reopened. Repairs are expected to be complete early next week.
The fishing catwalk on the north side of the bridge remains open, but a 50-foot section at the eastern end of the catwalk will be closed for safety.
