MOREHEAD CITY — The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ Artificial Reef Program will hold a public meeting at 6 p.m. Feb. 8 in Room 168 of the Dare County Administrative Building, 954 Marshall C. Collins Drive, Manteo.
The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public of enhancement plans for four artificial reefs near Oregon Inlet: AR-130, AR-140, AR-145 and AR-160 (Oregon Inlet Reef). The Division of Marine Fisheries is working with the N.C. Department of Transportation to receive demolition materials from the Bonner Bridge replacement project. Those materials will be distributed among these reefs. Bridge demolition is expected to begin in the spring of 2018.
