Wright Memorial Bridge Westbound Lane to Close

Work will begin next week on a project to improve and expand the life of the westbound U.S. 158 Wright Memorial Bridge over the Currituck Sound at the Currituck and Dare County line. Starting Monday, Sept. 16, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close the westbound bridge and shift all traffic onto the U.S. 158 East bridge in a two-lane, two-way pattern. The westbound bridge will reopen no later than May 15, 2014. For more information regarding the project please visit https://apps.ncdot.gov/newsreleases/details.aspx?r=8759
