Bonner Bridge One Lane For Next Two Months

Repair work on the Bonner Bridge will force the only highway to Hatteras Island down to one lane for the next couple of months.

The D.O.T. says crews are replacing deteriorating sections of steel girders over the main channel. Work began today and is scheduled to finish by May 22nd, just in time for the Memorial Day rush.

Motorists will be faced with a lane closure along a quarter mile section of the bridge. The first couple of days that closure will only be during the day, but will eventually go into effect 24 hours a day. Special decking placed underneath the bridge for workers to use will also reduce the height of vessels traveling through from 65 feet to 61 feet.

Cost of the project is $741,000.

    Why don't they do it in June and July? Thet seems more like an appropriate state government decision.
