Wright Memorial Bridge to get $6.3M upgrade

Posted: Updated:
MANTEO, N.C. -

If you're planning on visiting the Outer Banks in September, you may have to take a different route.

The westbound lanes of the Wright Memorial Bridge from the Outer Banks are getting a $6.3 million upgrade.

The NCDOT announced Friday that the bridge will be resurfaced with a latex-modified concrete, providing a smooth riding surface.

Because of the concrete being used, the repair can only take place when surface temperatures are between 40 and 85 degrees and wind speeds are less than 10 miles an hour.

The two way traffic will be shifted to the eastbound bridge.

Work will begin as early as September 15 and will reopen to traffic next May.
