Norfolk Southern RR Bridge on the Pasquotank River, located 2 miles above Elizabeth City NC, is closed as of Saturday night . We heard a Coast Guard announcement today on VHF 16 saying the bridge is closed due to mechanical problems. After a train crossed the bridge this afternoon, they were unable to reopen the span. A contractor is due first thing in the Sunday morning April 15, and they “hope” to have the bridge open mid day. But for now assume it is inoperable.
