The new Sunset Beach Bridge will open completed before the full project is completed. The bridge walk will be held on Monday, November 1, from 1 to 4 PM, beginning on the mainland side. The bridge is expected to open several days later. After the bridge opens, the detour, the work bridge and the old bridge will be removed. Causeway changes will be made. Over 500 feet of additional marsh has been established through removal of portions of the original causeway. Infiltration basins on the island and mainland ends will capture run-off from the bridge to prevent chemicals from polluting the water. The pontoon bridge will not be removed until work has been completed.
