NOTE: THE TWO CATWALKS ON THIS BRIDGE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR THE NEW BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION. REOPENING IS EXPECTED SOMETIME IN 2020.
There are two catwalks on the southern end of the Bonner Bridge that spans the Oregon Inlet channel. The catwalks are a dedicated fishing walkway that is separated from the roadway – which makes it a safe fishing area.
There is plenty of parking on the south side of the Bonner Bridge – just east of the NC 12.
Take extreme caution when accesses the west side of the bridge catwalk even though there is a crosswalk area. Vehicles can come into view from over the crest of the bridge quickly. Look both ways then look north before crossing. The west catwalk is NOT a good location to take children.
