Surf City Bridge (North Carolina)
Posted December 29, 2015

A high arch replacement bridge is in the works with construction planned for the 2017 time frame. The replacement bridge will be approx. 1,000 ft. south of the existing swing bridge. The replacement bridge will have a clearance of 65' above the mean water level. The new fixed bridge will begin at the intersection of Roland Avenue, Little Kinston Road and Atkinson Point on the mainland side and connect to N.C. 210 on the island side between Kinston Avenue and Roland Avenue.
