NCDOT awards Bonner repair, other contracts
A Pennsylvania company has been awarded a $1.8 million project that can start later this month to add structures to reduce undermining of three “bents” under the half-century old Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, which carries N.C. 12 over Oregon Inlet.
The sand-scour protection will consist of rock filled wire baskets being placed on the bottom of the inlet between the bridge supports and large sandbags being placed around the pilings.
“Bents” are the structures of pilings and caps that holds up the supports and girders of a bridge.
The project will also involve the rehabilitation of one bent.
Completion is scheduled for no later than Dec. 1.
