Each month, NCDOT distributes a “look ahead” for the planned construction activities on the

NC 12 Rodanthe bridge project. Construction activities are dependent on equipment and weather and are subject to change.

Between Aug. 27, 2020 and Sept. 26, 2020, the following construction activities are expected:

South End

– Work Trestle: Steel pipe pile installation will take place for Bridge Bent 42 to Bent 45 (i.e. approximately 1,375 feet to 1,000 feet from the shoreline). Track girders will be installed as individual steel pile clusters are installed. Pile driving can be expected to take place anytime between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday to Sunday. A straddle platform and crane will remove the work trestle from Bent 30 through Bent 34 (i.e. approximately 1,325 feet to 1,200 feet from the shoreline).

– Bridge Piling: Concrete cylinder piles will be driven for Bridge Bent 37 to Bent 40 (i.e. 1,200 feet to 1,425 feet from the shoreline). Pile driving can be expected to take place anytime between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday to Sunday.
