RODANTHE, N.C. (WAVY) — Officials recently held a virtual project update on the Rodanthe ‘Jug Handle’ Bridge project.
As the project nears completion, NCDOT officials and project engineers said the project is approximately 95% complete and is set to be finished in early 2022.
Traffic patterns are set to shift in February or March, weather dependent.
The Rodanthe Bridge is under construction to become a long-term transportation solution for when N.C. 12 is washed out by severe storms. It raises the highway onto a 2.4-mile bridge over the Pamlico Sound between the southern end of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge and Rodanthe. It bypasses the vulnerable part of the highway known as the “S-curves.”
The project was expected to be completed in late 2020 or early 2021, however, the completion date has been bumped back to early 2022.
