PENDER COUNTY, NC - (WECT)- Plans to build a new bridge into Topsail Island have many residents upset.
According to NCDOT, the new bridge would start at the intersection of N.C. 50/N.C. 210 with Little Kinston Road and Atkinson Point, it would then cross the Intracoastal Waterway about 1,000 feet south of the existing bridge. Once the new fixed bridge is up, the old one will be torn down.
Several residents said the bridge is a staple of the island.
