PROPOSED MID-CURRITUCK BRIDGE

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.

  • Robert Manry We do not need this bridge. It is a waste of money and it will spoil the natural beauty of the northern Outer Banks and Currituck Sound.

  • Bobbie Williamson please consider this bridge or bring back the ferry service from the currituck county courthouse location to whale head. the traffic is so gruesome on any given weekend to travel north on route 12. we know the monies brought in should justify an alternative method of getting to the northern beaches….please come up with an alternative
