NCDOT to Install New Guardrails on Emerald Isle Bridge

NCDOT is planning to install new, tubular steel guardrails on the NC 58 bridge in 2016, likely in the fall after the 2016 prime tourism season.  These railings will be similar to those in place on the Atlantic Beach - Morehead City bridge.  The current concrete railings are approximately 28 inches high, and the new steel railings will extend an additional 26 inches, resulting in a total guard rail height of 54 inches.  The photo below shows a simulated view with the new guard rails in place.
