At the Rodanthe breach area, crews continued hauling sand for dune construction and installed sand bags along the S-curves. Crews moved to south of the Pea Island breach to begin installing sand bags.
At the temporary bridge location on Pea Island, crews drove 8 piles at bent 3. At bent 2, crews set up the pile driving template and will begin driving piles soon. Bents are substructures supporting each end of the bridge span. Approximately 30 additional feet of the bridge was assembled Tuesday.
NCDOT estimates that the roadway could be fully reopened sometime in early October depending on weather conditions between now and then.
