PORSTMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - Hampton Bay Days are almost here! The weekend of September 8th and 9th will be filled with family fun along the Hampton waterfront and one of the most popular events will be in the water off Mill Point. The "Freaky Kon-Tiki" raft race will once again test the imagination and seaworthiness of its participants, and don't forget about your souvenir poster by local artist Bryan Lopatic!
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
