It's the Island Way

What better way to celebrate the reopening of NC Highway 12 (and our brand new bridges) than to have a community pot luck dinner! The Ocracoke Civic & Business Association is hosting the event, which will be held at the Community Center at 6 o'clock pm on Wednesday, March 5. The main course and drinks will be provided by OCBA. Everyone is invited.

Of course, the highway will open officially at 5 pm on Wednesday. I am thinking that so many Ocracokers will drive over the bridges between 5 pm & 6 pm that they'll need to be resurfaced on Thursday!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a fun island crossword puzzle. You can view it here.


  1. Oh, No! There's a bridge to Okracoke now? Part of its charm was that it could only be reached by boat. I know it still has much to offer--but, alas, bigger crowds will be one of them.

    Oh, well--I guess there's no stopping "progress."


  2. No, No, No! There is no bridge to Ocracoke. The short bridges (plural) that spanned the creeks on Ocracoke Island have been replaced. You still need to take a ferry to get to the island. Sorry for the confusion!

  3. Most excellent! I am so happy to hear it. Would I be correct in assuming that the vast majority of ocracokers would oppose such a span to Hatteras?
