Transportation officials have approved a comprehensive list of proposed construction for the next 10 years that for the first time is based on a ranking projects according to their impact on a statewide, regional and local level.

The 2016-2025 State Transportation Improvement Program includes nearly 1,100 projects that highway officials expect to support the creation of nearly 300,000 jobs in the state.

Headline projects on the Outer Banks in the STIP include the replacement for the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet and a toll bridge between Corolla and mainland Currituck County, both of which have been delayed for decades.

Improvements to N.C. 12 between Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe are mentioned in the plan as a second phase of the Bonner Bridge replacement, but the specifics were not included.

The STIP has just over $434 million budgeted for construction of the new Bonner Bridge, which is scheduled to start next year. For the rest of the the story check out
