NCDOT expects parts of NC 12 to remain closed through Tuesday afternoon

As of Monday morning, NC 12 is closed between the Marc Basnight Bridge over Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe. NC 12 on Ocracoke Island between the pony pens and the ferry terminal is also closed.

NCDOT reports that Sunday night’s high tide was the “most severe of the event so far, with water and deep sand on several portions of roadway. Our crews are currently starting clearing operations, but the next two high tide cycles are forecast to produce similar results.”
