Emerald Isle Bridge Construction Update - January 3, 2020


N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews are working to extend the life of the Emerald Isle Bridge during the 2020 off-season.

Construction work has resumed.  A lane of N.C. 58 on the Emerald Isle Bridge will be closed weekdays (Monday through Friday) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.  A lane of the bridge will also be closed on weekends as needed.  Weekend work is expected to begin at 7 a.m. Saturday and last through 5 p.m. Sunday.  Repairs are anticipated to occur 7-days per week, through late-March 2020.  At minimum, one lane of the bridge will remain open for traffic flow during the entire construction period.
