Havent seen any plans for bridge,but how high will it be over water? Will boats be able to fit under it? Can a kiter keep his kite low and sneak under it.If its windy enough can you jump over it? Maybe build some features into it,sliders etc.

Apparently Dimitri is going to be opening this bridge by jumping over it. True.

Somewhere there are artistic renditions showing how the bridge will look from different distances. They did this when evaluating all the different proposals. I don't know where it is, but a creative web search may pull up this presentation.

Looks like the bridge is happening.

So I'm hoping to sneak out on one last trip to the sound this fall before this thing gets built. I'll really miss kiting there....lots of great memories learning to kite with some great people.
It's been a fun ride Rodanthe!
Thanks!
