This update was on the project posted by NCDOT earlier on the morning of April 8.
Great news for our Outer Banks fisherfolk: the process of improving and installing new railings on the remaining 1,046 feet of the old Bonner Bridge is well underway, and in a few short months, it will be open to the public for fishing, sightseeing and strolling!
There’s already a parking lot at the southern end of the Basnight Bridge where people will be able to access the pier. Part of the conversion process will be to construct a handicap-accessible walkway between the parking lot and the pier. We expect to open it sometime this summer.
