This was a complete lack of planning and coordination on the part of NCDOT. Closing the bridge with downtown already congested due to construction made the situation a nightmare to say the VERY least. In the past bridge work was conducted at night to help offset the potential traffic situation. For failing to notify the public was just a bad decision. Lets think about this...The only area cardiac, OB and Trauma unit it at NHRMC and just what if a critical patient from an outlying facility needed to get there, it would NOT have been possible. Someone needs to be held accountable for this BAD decision and piss poor planning.
