OUTER BANKS, N.C. (WAVY) - On Jan. 18, crews will begin work to prevent erosion at the site of the temporary bridge on N.C. Highway 12.
The temporary bridge opened in Oct. after Hurricane Irene left four breaches in Highway 12 two months earlier.
The bridge covers the widest gap and reconnects Hatteras Island to the rest of the banks.
Crews will work on the south end of the bridge for the next six weeks.
Flaggers will direct drivers daily during the closures from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
A local convicted robber will serve 15 years behind bars for his part in a robbery at the Oceanfront two years ago.
Charges have been made in a domestic abuse investigation involving a 74-year-old woman in Elizabeth City.
Witnesses tell WAVY.com the attack of a shopper was the cause of a heavy police presence at the Ross department store at Military Circle in Norfolk Wednesday night.
