U.S. 64 Improvements - Dare & Tyrrell Counties



Based on the results of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s funding formula, this project remains unfunded in the current State Transportation Improvement Plan. Replacement of the Lindsay C. Warren Bridge, U.S. 64 over the Alligator River ​(HB-0001), is currently in the preliminary design phase. 


​Project Overview

The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes widening a 27.3-mile segment of U.S. 64 from Columbia in Tyrrell County to U.S. 264 near Manns Harbor in Dare County, and to replace the Lindsay C. Warren Bridge across the Alligator River in Dare County, which is nearing the end of its service life.

The Lindsay C. Warren Bridge has been deemed structurally deficient, meaning the bridge is still safe to use but has a posted weight limit for vehicles.

As a primary evacuation route for the Outer Banks and northeastern North Carolina, work on this stretch of U.S. 64 would help improve emergency evacuation times.
