People wanted access to Pea Island at ANY cost, so the 13 mile bridge was scrubbed. It would have been bad for “business”

Hey why not just turn Hatteras Island into a National Wildlife Refuge in its entirety and remove all the permanent residents? Raze all the buildings up and down the island so the NPS can turn it into the very first natuonal open range drive through zoo. Then maybe all the taxpayers and tree huggers can come together for a Kumbaya moment! Wouldn’t that be so nice! I can feel the love already!

Surfq23, if you live on a sand bar, or occasionally visit, expect to have access issues on occasion. There is no solution that is worthy of tax payer dollars. The Rodanthe Jug Handle is a perfect example of a useless bridge and waste of tax payer dollars.

The taxpayers have paid $250 million or so for a replacement bridge that only gets us to the other side, but does not address the area to the south of the bridge that continues to be flooded and covered with sand. It was short-sighted to not have extended the length beyond this area.
