Lawsuit Filed over the New Rodanthe Bridge By Save Our Sound OBX Claiming Harmful Environmental Impact

February 14th, 2017

A lawsuit has been filed over the new Rodanathe Bridge in the Outer Banks claiming the North Carolina Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration’s approval of the bridge violated the National Environmental Policy Act by using outdated information.

This 27-page lawsuit was filed by members of an environmental group in the Outer Banks, Save our Sound OBX, claiming that transportation officials failed to fully review the environmental impact of the bridge before meeting approval.

Additionally, Save our Sound OBX claims that the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration used outdated information in order to meet approval standards, which is in violation of the National Environmental Policy Act.

Save our Sound OBX alleges that transportation officials “had no intention of taking an authentic look” at the environmental impact of the project, or any potential alternatives for that matter.
