Unofficial word today (from the Dare Building Supply driver -- he sits in the cab of an impressive high-wheeled four wheel drive monster of a truck, just perfect for traveling on the beach) is that the contractors are now paving our island bridges. And he and others think Highway 12 will be open again at the end of this week, or early next week. Of course, this is not official information, and weather and other factors will determine exactly when the road is reopened.
