NC 12 and Other OBX Problems
« on: November 16, 2017, 06:46:56 PM »

It's a little surprising that there isn't a thread for NC 12 and its many tribulations, so perhaps it's worth starting one. Today's news is that the (semi-)permanent bridge over New Inlet has opened to traffic:

Here's the Google Maps view of the temporary bridge that is being replaced:

This opening confirms that NCDOT accepts this version of the historic New Inlet, opened by Hurricane Irene in 2011, as a permanent feature of OBX geography. To the extent that anything is permanent on the Banks, that is.
