The Neuse River Bridge,

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.
