Category 3A: Major Highway Structures Over $10 Million Honorable Mention, image of project The Neuse River Bridge, New Bern, North Carolina

The Neuse River Bridge,
New Bern, North Carolina

Designer:
Ralph Whitehead Associates,
Charlotte, NC

Contractor:
Traylor Brothers, Inc., Evansville, IN

The Neuse River Bridge, one of the largest public works projects in North Carolina, provided a complex yet functional bypass at the historic town of New Bern. A new interchange, connecting to US 70, was added to funnel heavy beach traffic onto and off of the bridge with lesser impacts on communities and land use.
