Solution southern approach Temporary Bridge




Elevate the road approaching the bridge.

Ok, so waves will not over wash but hit the side and undermine.

Oh, they will evaluate if a dune may be helpful and coordinate with USFWS.

When? After the new road is undermined? Oh, and elevating can be completed faster than a dune.

Big question, who is standing in the way of putting a dune in this location and jeopardizing the safety of all who travel this route. It over washes several days each montheven without storms.

RE: Solution southern approach Temporary Bridge




The road was engineered to flood. When the grades were shot the elevations could have been raised but were not. It is designed to flood.


RE: Solution southern approach Temporary Bridge




The road on HI/PI can be undermined even when not elevated, like at Mirlo. The water only has to start running along beside the pavement and it will start the undermining process. The base under the road and anything to limit/slow velocity is what can limit this.

Ok, finally got an update. Not from NCDOT but from County Comissioners. The extent of the updateon 10/23 the Comissioners were told the elevated road way will be addressed within a month or two. Not much detail.

No berm, why? Finally we are being toldUSFWS! But USFWS can build and maintain berm's to protect their ponds and the canal zone? We never asked for a berm on the ocean front, just a berm to protect the roadcould be close to the road. Actually, I thought I read somewhere that NPS (and I assumed USFWS) are required to allow berms to protect the road. Something smells bad!

Oh and its been a month since the event pictured in the article but repaving in Ocracoke is more important than maintaining access to the mainland? And it has taken over a month to give us some information on a time line! And even now it will take another couple of weeks to give us a dates? What's the hurry? I just hope the influx of people for Guinness Book's world record surf fishing tournament don't meet with harm on their way here. Also, let's hope no one needs emergency medical carebecause helicopters don't fly in 40 mph winds.

And Dennis, this is too important to let you and your ilk bully me off this board.

Looks like Outer Banks Voice removed your comment Ginny. Why?

Because Gin was right. Again. USF&WS and NPS got it wrong. Again. Thankfully, Carol Dillon's response remains.

For goodness sake, NCDOT is the only Agency working for the People. A STATE Agency.

Time to take the Lands back and make it a State Park. Condemnation due to mismanagement of Public Safety is a start.

OH SWELL ... If Jim and Ginny is in town she can scream and holler at the temporary NPS Outer Banks Group Supt., Carol Dillon can brag that NPS personnel are not welcome in her store, the IFP can distort the facts with negative comment and all can wonder why NCDOT's actions do not revolve around Hatteras Island ... I think I'll pass on attending the meeting. USA Flag

If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the problem Loser

But we knew that about you already now didn't we Dennis?


RE: Solution southern approach Temporary Bridge




Yeah Dennis; you're either with us or against us; you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink; and there but for the grace of god go I! Light bulb

It was of no interest to me. I have on many occasions seen how these "shows" go (south) real quick.

Because you walk the walk and just do not talk the talk, I am sure you picked up Bubba in Norfolk on the way down and both of you were in attendance.

We all are awaiting to hear of your and Bubba's input.

You know dennis, you destroy your credibility with each and every post on each and every thread. Man, I can't even stomach your worthless opinions particularly those that don't impact you in KDH or Freddyville. Reread your posts as you use a crowbar to take your foot out of your mouth. Crying smiley
But go on and keep entertaining us all. Man...really? You should be embarrassed.
