Southern Environmental Law Center Seeks NCDOT E-Mail about Mid-Currituck Bridge

The Virginian-Pilot reports, “A group opposing construction of the Currituck mid-county bridge has filed a lawsuit against the North Carolina secretary of transportation. The Southern Environmental Law Center seeks email communication sent or received by state transportation board member Malcolm Fearing regarding the bridge proposed to cross the Currituck Sound. Secretary of Transportation Nick Tennyson is named as the defendant.” The report adds, “The group questions how the mid-Currituck bridge made it through the state’s highway project scoring process despite low marks on key factors such as high cost, said Kym Hunter, an attorney with the SELC.”
