PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — In Surf City, a bridge that was years in the making has now been open for exactly one year.
The Surf City Bridge opened December 4 last year.
NCDOT broke ground on the project in October 2016.
The $54 million bridge replaced a swing bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway .
The bridge has a 65-foot vertical clearance that doesn’t need to open for boats, eliminating vehicle and boat traffic delays.
