Pedestrian Day at the New Oregon Inlet Bridge
A couple of weeks ago, on a cold and very windy day, the soon to be opened new bridge over Oregon Inlet (yet to be named), was open on Saturday, only to walk or bicycle over. For such a cold day the turnout was amazing! We Outer Bankers have been watching it take shape for a couple of years and are ready for the upgrade! It has wide walk/bike lanes on the sides of the two lane roadway. We photographers will certainly take advantage of this new higher platform, and motorists will love its wide lanes and beautiful vistas too. But I imagine the boat captains going under it will appreciate it most of all.The old bridge could be tricky and sometimes treacherous to navigate, as the channels and shoals shifted. It will soon be dismantled. About time!
I hope you enjoy it,
