ODELL WILLIAMSON MEMORIAL BRIDGE REHABILITATION
The NC Department of Transportation is planning to perform rehabilitation work on the Odell Williamson Memorial Bridge beginning Summer 2020.
This work will include: shortcrete repairs to substructure, epoxy coat for girder ends, pre-stressed concrete girder repairs, and new bicycle/pedestrian railings.
The Town has selected a vertical railing design to help decrease the obstruction of scenic views while still providing safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
NCDOT has indicated that this work should not interrupt traffic during the busy tourist season, with most of the work being performed at night.
