NC 12 Rodanthe Bridge Construction

Fast Facts

Project # B-2500B
Type: New Bridge Construction
Affected Counties: Dare
Estimated Cost: $179,200,000 to $198,300,000


Because NC 12, from the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge to northern Rodanthe, particularly a section known as the “S-curves,” is susceptible to storm washout and breeches, the long-term remedy preferred by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is to build a bridge.

The new 2.4-mile “jug handle” bridge will extend from the southern end of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge over the Pamlico Sound and into Rodanthe through the Midgett Island Campground and ending near the Island Ice Cream and Convenience Store on NC 12.

There are only a handful of attorneys in NC who practice eminent domain exclusively, and even fewer with NCDOT experience. We have several. That’s why its worth getting in touch with us for a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
