Todays update.
Bonner Bridge could open by next week if dredged sand deposited around exposed pilings compacts well.
Crews conducted underwater sonar surveys and divers took a closer look Wednesday around bent 166, a bridge section south of the high-rise, according to a release sent late Wednesday from the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
Results of the inspection will be announced Thursday, but initial indications were better than expected, said Allen Burrus, a Dare County commissioner.
The bridge could open within a week or as late as March, said state District I engineer Jerry Jennings.

Sorry Bille, apples and oranges. One of the reasons HI is such a popular kiting location is the vast amount of shallow water.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced Sunday the immediate reopening of the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge across Oregon Inlet.
Multiple inspections have shown the bridge is safe, the department said in a news release. Recent tests included sonar scans, test pilings and several inspections. Meanwhile, the department will continue emergency work to repair the structure.
