    Default Bonner Bridge accessing Hatteras Island via NC 12 closed for emergency repairs

    Today the NC DOT announced immediate closure of the Bonner Bridge, the sole bridge linking Hatteras Island to the mainland. The Bonner Bridge carries NC 12 over Oregon Inlet at a point approximately 10 miles south of the NC 12- US 64 junction at South Nags Head, NC.

    Ferry service from Stumpy Point on the mainland to Avon on Hatteras Island begins Wednesday, December 4. The bridge is expected to be closed for as much as 90 days.

    I've not looked at the press release -- what was the reason for the closure?

    Default Bonner Bridge re-opened 12/14/2013

    The NCDOT re-opened the Bonner Bridge linking Hatteras Island to the NC mainland on Sunday, December 14. Dredging emplaced enough sand around the scoured-out supports to allow re-opening immediately, although much more work and emplacement of other materials around the endangered pilings will continue in the coming weeks and months.

    The emergency ferry service from Stumpy Point to Rodanthe ended this morning.
