Virginia Dare Bridge
The Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge is the newest, longest, and widest bridge over the Croatan Sound. It was built in 2002. The four-lane bridge carries U.S. Highway 64 Bypass from Manns Harbor to Roanoke Island in the U.S. state of North Carolina. This bridge along with the Washington Baum Bridge and Melvin R Daniels Bridge provide express access from the North Carolina mainland to the Outer Banks communities. The Virgina Dare Memorial Bridge was named after Virginia Dare, the first child born in the Americas to English parents, who resided on the Roanoke Island colony. At a length of 5.2 miles, the Dare Bridge is the longest in the state. It was constructed with nearly 44,000 tons of deck concrete, 72 concrete columns, and 2,368 piles.
The Dare Bridge succeeded the old William B. Umstead Bridge, which was previously the only crossing over the Croatan Sound. The Umstead Bridge continues to serve as a segment of U.S. Highway 64, which goes through the town of Manteo; the Dare Bridge bypasses this town on U.S. Highway 64 Bypass.
The second crossing over the sound was constructed to alleviate traffic congestion along the old Umstead Bridge and through Manteo, as well as to provide a safer and more efficient hurricane evacuation route for Outer Banks residents and visitors.

It's not often that you see a stop light on a bridge unless it is a draw bridge or a swing bridge. If this stop light had not been there and George Jetson approached in his hover craft from the left, I would have had the right of way. I was stopped near the east end of the Lindsey C. Warren Bridge over the Alligator River for about fifteen minutes. When I drove by the construction zone it looked like they were making repairs on the pillars on the south side of the bridge. If repairs were needed, I am glad they were being made. It was windy while I was stopped on the bridge. My car swayed. I am guessing I would have lost the use of my car's GPS if it had fallen in the river. I would have had to resort to my smart phone GPS for directions on crossing that last 1/2 mile or so of the Alligator River. I am not a good swimmer. I'm glad the bridge held.
