Where in Carolina Country is This?

More than 230 of you, from at least a dozen different cooperatives, recognized the October magazine’s photo looking east on the Lindsay C. Warren Bridge over Alligator River (also the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway) on Hwy. 64 between Tyrrell and Dare counties. It’s a swing drawbridge that opens some 500 times a month for vessels to pass through. Built in 1950, the two-lane bridge is 2.8 miles long. NCDOT closed the bridge for about two weeks in April when maintenance was performed on the swing. Sid Atkinson of Harkers Island said he was responsible for the electrical controls here for 30 years. The winning entry, chosen at random from all correct submissions, was from Crystal Hardison of Manns Harbor, a member of Tideland EMC.
