Work on the Eaton’s Ferry Bridge project is complete. 

According to Marty Homan of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, during the rehabilitation project: repairs were made to the substructure such as repairing cracks in the concrete; all of the substructure steel beams were stripped, blasted, recoated and painted; epoxy coating was applied to the concrete pedestals and the horizontal caps that come out of the water; polyester polymer concrete overlay was applied to the deck; all joints were replaced; some guardrails were replaced; and riprap repair was done in three locations on the causeway.

The total cost of the project, which started in September 2018 and concluded on July 1, was over $3 million.  NC DOT does not anticipate the need for any more work on the bridge outside of regular maintenance in the near future.
