State transportation officials are inviting people to a virtual information meeting Sept. 3 on the ongoing Rodanthe bridge project.

The bridge is due for completion in the fall of 2021.

The virtual meeting will be held 6 to 8 p.m., Sept. 3. During the meeting, NCDOT officials and project engineers will provide an update on the project’s progress and answer questions.

People may participate by phone or online.
