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.

    The place will be a mess. People will be hanging out under the new bridge partying and probably camping too. It will attract all kinds of riffraff and be a pain for Law Enforcement. And the trash. Heaven help the people who have to clean the place up. Fishermen can be nasty slobs.

    As far a “People hanging out ect. ect.”) under the new bridge brainiac… from the granite rift raff to the end is water that has some of the strongest currents on the east coast , kind of hard to pitch a tent there…..and said problems dont exist at the other three public piers that are local and have been there for years ,and they are all well maintained with none of the problems that you have clearly imagined. So go back to telling kids to get off your lawn and stop spreading your personal version of dread to the rest of us !!!
