While there is nothing new to really report regarding the Mid-Currituck Bridge, I recently received an email for John Page, Project Manager for the NCTA regarding the timing of the record of decision and found it noteworthy to post. It appears the official decision on the EIS will be in the first quarter 2011. For more information you can visit their website here

Dear Mr. Summerton:

The Turnpike Authority is working with environmental regulatory agencies to resolve key environmental concerns associated with a Mid-Currituck Bridge. Other design refinements are being made to the bridge project to address a variety of concerns raised during the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) comment period. It is currently expected that a Preferred Alternative will be selected by the end of the year. If a bridge project is selected, the Turnpike Authority will issue a Final EIS, followed by a Record of Decision (sometime next year). I do not have a more precise time right now.

John Page

Parsons Brinckerhoff

Project Manager
