NCTA announces its preferred route for Mid-Curituck Bridge

Much anticipated and speculated, the North Carolina Turnpike Authority has chosen and submitted for approval the preferred route for the mid-Currituck Bridge. On the Outer Banks side, they have selected the Northernmost terminus point North of Monteray Shores and South of Corolla Bay. On the mainland side, it appears that Aydlett road will not be closed, something that was contested by residents there.

While this shows some progress on the investigation side of the bridge feasibility, the question now becomes whether or not it is financially feasible with the public funds committed by the State in jeopardy.
