PROPOSED MID-CURRITUCK BRIDGE
To Governor Pat McCrory, Senator Bill Cook, Representative Bob Steinberg, the North Carolina Turnpike Authority, NCDOT, North Carolina Board of Transportation, the Albemarle Regional Planning Organization 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.
