Breaking News Mid County Bridge Controversey

BREAKING NEWS! Mid-Currituck “Build the Bridge” Controversy . On Monday a bill “H817 was sent back to the North Carolina State Senate for final discussion. This bill zero’s out the gap funding for the bridge, basically doing away with the funding for the project. We NEED this bridge for many reasons. Recently, I was visiting on the South Jersey shore, Ocean City to be specific. There are 4 bridges giving access and egress to this 7 mile long island. FOUR bridges in all for a 7 mile island! The Outer Banks stretches 158 miles and we have TWO. The Kitty Hawk bridge and the Manteo bridge, that’s it! The need for the Mid-County bridge is not just about convenience, it is about common sense and safety. We need more than TWO ways off the island. Anyone that has ventured to the Outer Banks on a mid-season weekend knows just how congested the roads are and how long it can take to get off or on the island. Compound this with a serious hurricane and you have a recipe for disaster. But its more than that. Those folks "patiently" sitting in their cars trying to make their way down to our "Little Slice of Paradise" for the much needed vacation that they have planned and saved for all year long, are the reason that the rest of us can afford to call the Outer Banks home. And God Bless them for it! The Mid-County Bridge will dramatically reduce the traffic delays and enhance our guests overall vacation experience, a fact that can't help but improve our overall economy. The bridge is expected to run from Coinjock (where you cross the intercoastal waterway on the mainland) to the north end of Monteray Shores in Corolla. So who ever you are: Native, Local, Long Time Resident or Occasional Visitor, take a minute to contact our Governor and Senators and tell them you are in support of the Mid-Currituck bridge.   Governor Pat McCrory:    www.governor.state.nc.us/contact  Tweet to @PatMcCroryNC 919-814-2000   Senator Richard Burr:       www.burr.senate.gov/contact      202-224-3154   Senator Kay Hagan:            www.hagan.senate.gov/contact
