Median that would help complete Turner Street bridge underway
BEAUFORT, Carteret County —
Construction has begun on a median that is needed for the Turner Street Bridge.
The 50-foot median along Turner Street in Beaufort was the topic of discussion at Monday's town commissioners meeting. It has delayed the finish of the Turner Street Bridge. The bridge was supposed to open this month but a lot of decisions still had to be made, like whether the project would include medians.
Also on Monday, the commissioners asked a company called Lanier to take over management of paid parking in the downtown area. The town had managed paid parking in Beaufort for several years. However, the commissioners said Lanier would do a more efficient job.
