New Bern Drawbridge Taking Longer Than Expected

People in New Bern may have to wait a little longer to get their new bridge to downtown. And that delay may start costing the contractor.

The Alfred Cunningham Drawbridge in New Bern was supposed to be done by November 1st. That target end date was pushed back to mid-December.

Now, the Department of Transportation says the expected completion date has been pushed back to mid-January.

Bridge engineer Johnny Metcalfe says if the contractor doesn't have the bridge open by December 12th then the state can start imposing liquidated damages.
