bonner bridge: OBX To Get New Bonner Bridge To Hatteras Island! - 06/30/15 10:45 AM
It has been a long time coming (decades in fact), but a settlement agreement was finally reached this week that will allow the aging, unquestionably unsafe Herbert C. Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet to be replaced with a new parallel bridge connecting Hatteras Island to the northern Outer Banks.
You can read the full press release below, and then give us your thoughts on this landmark decision in the comments!
