DARE COUNTY, NC (WAVY) - When Hurricane Irene slammed the Outer Banks in Aug., it left holes in Highway 12. Crews built a temporary bridge over the widest breach to reconnect Hatteras Island with the rest of the banks.
Now, North Carolina Transportation officials want residents to weigh in on how to permanently fix those breaches.
