“The lighting on the bridge itself will be replaced under the current contract,” N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.

She said N.C. DOT “was not aware of an issue with the approach lighting.”

“The division will look into the issue and schedule a time to repair the lighting in the near future,” Stewart said.

    The original contract for the painting work included a complete overhaul of both the bridge lighting and the approach lighting. Last year the Star News ran a story that because of weather and contractor delays, the approach lighting would be put off until this spring. Well it is spring and nothing has been done to the approach lighting. I don’t buy this response from the DOT. Are they letting the contractor out of the approach lighting overhaul because they are taking so much time to paint the bridge? The NCDOT has known for years that the lights don’t work. Look at all the comments from readers on My Reporter requesting that they fix the lights. The responses have ranged from we don’t have a truck to reach the lights or the wiring is faulty. Why can’t they fix them? Count how many lights are out on the interstates in Raleigh, then look at Wilmington. Come on DOT what is up? I hope the Star can investigate why we are not getting the approach lighting working or replaced like they originally were going to do. Yes the lights on the bridge itself do work, but I am tired of driving in the dark on the approaches.
