Come on down! The Bonner Bridge is Open!

Rejoicing can be heard throughout the villages of Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands.   As of 4 PM this afternoon, everyone can again drive on and off of Hatteras freely!

From NCDOT: “Governor Pat McCrory and Transportation Secretary Tony Tata announce the reopening of the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on N.C. 12 at 4 p.m. this afternoon.  North Carolina Department of Transportation engineers deemed the bridge safe for traffic after several sonar scans, driving two test pilings, and multiple inspections over the past week.  The emergency repair work to add more support to the bridge continues”.

Life on this sandbar will return to normal again, just in time for the holidays.   We hope you to see you soon!
