NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - All good things must come to an end and they did this weekend for the Norfolk Admirals.
Last year at this time, the Norfolk Admirals were just preparing to start a playoff run, that would end in early June with a first Calder Cup championship.
Tuesday, instead of getting ready to defend their title, the Admirals were cleaning out their lockers, and heading home for the summer.
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.
