New Deadline For New Bern's New Bridge

A new date is set for the opening of the long-awaited new drawbridge into New Bern.

The Department of Transportation says March 19 is the new deadline for the bridge to open. The most recent deadline was supposed to be February 26, but officials say the cold and wintry weather kept crews from finishing the job.

    haha, yeah, we'll see... I've been waiting to use that bridge so I don't have to keep going around my elbow to get to my thumb every day to and from work. But hopefully the weather will be better this month so they'll really be able to finish by this deadline...

    Don't blame New Bern, we didn't build it, just going to operate it. Talk to the state.
