Virtual update on Rodanthe bridge set

State transportation officials are inviting local residents and other interested parties to a virtual information meeting March 4 on the ongoing Rodanthe “Jug Handle” Bridge project.

The bridge, which is currently under construction on the Outer Banks, is a long-term transportation solution for N.C. 12. The N.C. Department of Transportation is raising 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.

The bridge is due for completion in late 2021 or early 2022.

The virtual meeting will be held beginning at 6 p.m. on March 4. During the meeting, NCDOT officials and project engineers will provide an update on the project’s progress and answer questions.
