1st of 2 Bonner Bridge projects underway

Posted: Updated:
NAGS HEAD, N.C. - Work is underway on the bridge that connects North Carolina's mainland to Hatteras Island.
     
Construction on the first of two projects for the Herbert Bonner Bridge began Wednesday.
     
The bridge is 50 years old. Analysts say the bridge was supposed to be replaced by now.
     
The state Department of Transportation awarded $215 million to a builder two years ago. But lawsuits questioning the environmental impact of construction stopped anything from happening.
