NC DOT awards contract for Bonner Bridge repairs

HATTERAS ISLAND (AP) — North Carolina has awarded a $1.8 million contract to a Pennsylvania company to repair a bridge that provides Hatteras Island with its only land link to the mainland.
The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reports Thursday that crews with American Bridge Co. in Corapolis, Pa., will begin work later this month.
The 2.7-mile-long Bonner Bridge was built in 1962 and has exceeded its expected lifespan. The state has spent $26.5 million in the last decade to fix deterioration caused by constant exposure to salt, strong currents and wind.
Last year, the North Carolina Department of Transportation awarded a $216 million contract to build a new bridge. That construction is expected to be finished in 2015.
