Showdown looms on mid-Currituck bridge this week
The Joint Transportation Oversight Committee has been closely examining the proposed mid-Currituck Bridge, with vocal opposition coming from Sen. Bill Rabon (R-Brunswick), who is a co-chair of the committee.
The bridge would be built using a public-private partnership, but could have the state picking up the tab for 30 years to cover revenue shortfalls.
North Carolina would have to pay the private group $10 million if the bridge project is cancelled under certain conditions.
The committee is slated to meet Friday morning in Raleigh, and is accepting comment from the public via e-mail to Kolt.Ulm@ncleg.net through Thursday at 12 p.m.
