Summer is almost over and it won’t be long before the landscape is going to change drastically in Surf City North Carolina. I for one have mixed feelings. I will miss the beauty and the charm of The Old Swing Bridge but at the same time as I wait in traffic with just a quick trip to do, it is me who wishes the new bridge was already done. I heard construction will be about four years. The fate of the Old Bridge is still uncertain. I would love to see it added to Soundside Park where we will see it and can walk on it, maybe take a fishing pole. Reality of course is that the upkeep would probably be expensive.
What do you think?
This article in Our State Magazine is a beautiful read about the story of the Old Swing Bridge.
Starting in October the construction will begin. Here is a rendition of the New Bridge.
