PROPOSED MID-CURRITUCK BRIDGE

403 Signatures Goal: 500

To Governor Bev Perdue, Senator Marc Basnight, Representative Bill Owens, the North Carolina Turnpike Authority, NCDOT,  North Carolina Board of Transportation Division 1 Representative Stan White and the Currituck County Commissioners: We the undersigned, strongly oppose the building of the Mid-Currituck Bridge. We seek to preserve the unique experience of the northern outer banks without the over development this bridge will bring. It will destroy the tranquil setting of Aydlett, N.C., create traffic backups where there are none now, endanger the safety of Aydlett residents by forcing us, and emergency vehicles, to use the bridge road for ingress/egress to our area, as well as allowing bridge users to exit right into the Aydlett community. It will also create more choke points on the Outer Banks and mainland, as well as only adding to the problem of traffic on the Northern Outer Banks. We believe other options for the summertime traffic issues are not getting due attention. This PROPOSED bridge also violates the land use plan for Currituck County and will force long time residents from their homes through the use of Eminent Domain. It is respectfully requested that other options are pursued.

    Scenic and peaceful Aydlett has been virtually unchanged through the decades, as a resident I would hate to see these lands and sound- views spoiled by increased traffic and its noise or a bridge spanning the beautiful sound. The cost and its detriment to the delicate eco-systems have not been fully weighed. With the rising seas and in the tragic event of a major storm it would become known as the bridge to "Nowhere".

    This bridge is a BAD idea. We don't want Currituck spoiled like so many other beach communities in NC. We LIKE going there by boat! If folks want to get there faster, buy a boat.

    NO BRIDGE!!! The northern shores of the OBX and the rural areas surrounding the Currituck make up some of the most beautiful natural areas I have seen in all of the continental US. In no way should we ruin this preserved area for the sake of a few selfish vacationers and locals. Keep the Currituck rural and free of greedy business men looking for a quick profit with no regard for nature.

    As a resident, I oppose the bridge.
    I do not want a bridge built that
    close to residents and the traffic
    it will bring to our back yards. We had no problem evacuating during
    hurricanes. It will destroy the our
    tranquil setting in Corolla.
