Abstract: The Marc Basnight Bridge, completed in February, carries North Carolina Highway 12 over the Oregon Inlet, an area that is one of the most dynamic and dangerous inlets on the Atlantic Coast. At 2.8 mi long, the new bridge features extensive use of precast concrete for durability, economy, and constructability.
