Bridge To Corolla

State officials and environmentalists are nearing a deal to build a 5-mile bridge to link an isolated island on North Carolina's Outer Banks with the mainland.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported Monday that the toll bridge would stretch over the Currituck Sound to Corrolla, known for its lighthouse and wild horses. The bridge is expected to generate $7 million in its first year.

An environmental impact statement is expected by the end of the year. Construction is scheduled to begin in February and be finished in 2013.
