Agree with points above and Beachmarks summary. my opinions:
One thing DOI learned from EPA was the "Sue and Settle" scam, which combined with the resulting "Consent Decrees" unreasonably burdened citizens with over-regulation, costs and loss of rights to public, and Private, property.
The +1, -2 regulation proposal on the table in congress now will possibly scale that back.
The EPA was a nice idea decades ago, but it is now a bureaucratic nightmare of tangled webs and collusion which does not benefit the environment, nor the general public, but rather niche special interests and lawyers.
For the Currytuck bridge, I don't see any money to be made by the niche special interests, other than delay and posture, so it will be up to the County and State to decide if this is reasonable. I have no opinion on whether the bridge is beneficial or not. Local government and residents should decide.
