Temporary Bridge Repair Update: Getting Close to Wrapping Up
NCDOT crews have finished the guardrail work affecting traffic on the N.C.12 temporary bridge. This afternoon,the permanent metal guardrail was installed. Work continues dredging sand to the south side of the inlet to reinforce the shoreline and to anchor the armor stone protecting the bridge. If the weather hold outs this weekend and next week, work will begin to fill approximately 100 sand bags which will be placed between the new sheet piling. The sand bags are five feet wide, 15 feet long & two feet tall. It's possible that next week, we may have to close a lane over the bridge for a small portion of a day or two while we load equipment necessary to finish the job.
