The North Carolina Department of Transportation has announced a delay in the opening of the Rodanthe Bridge due to issues with pavement markings.
In a press release issued early Wednesday afternoon, June 8, 2022, NCDOT stated “pavement markings installed earlier this week do not meet N.C. Department of Transportation specifications for quality or reflectivity.”
The prime contractor for the project, Flatiron, “after consultation with NCDOT, has elected to seek a new subcontractor to replace the substandard markings and re-stripe the bridge and the intersections,” the release continued. “Once a new subcontractor is in place, a better timeline on a traffic shift to the new bridge can be established.”
The markings are the final step for the completion of the 2.4-mile bridge over a section of the Pamlico Sound.
