Is this true? we were told the bridge to Corolla was a definite and would start after 2014???

NCDOT: Mid-Currituck Bridge

This is the official update...in development.

But the issue is funding and the State Legislator is considering not utilizing tolls to fund projects which would throw it back in the pot with all of the other projects. IMO, its stalled.

Just wanted to clarify that since the thread starter rounded the population of those two towns but gave exact for others. Just thought that was a big difference.

Towns I would live in...no order...New Bern...Greenville, Wilson, Wilmington...The crystal coast is nice...but in the middle of no where. I would go crazy after a while.
while your population numbers are correct for city limits, most of wilsons base is within the city limits of wilson. Most of goldsboro's base is outside the city limits
wayne co. population 113,000
wilson co. 82000

so actually the overall areas wayne is larger but wilson is catching up as it is pretty much becoming a commuter town for raleigh.

agreed crystal coast is nice but far from everywhere

I just noticed this post. If there is one thing that I think everybody agrees about Eastern Carolina, it is that things don't change in a hurry. You can believe that the info about the smaller towns in Eastern Carolina will be relevant for the next 20 or 30 years. A whole lot of these small towns are like stepping into a time machine and warping back 50 or 60 years. You might see a Bojangles or Food Lion pop up once in awhile but not much else changes.

I have been to just about every small town in Eastern Carolina and the names may change but not much else does.

I suppose I should have written "different" rather than "newer".

I've been going to Elizabeth City every now and then for business since 1985. I think it's a pretty nice place, although I prefer a more urban environment. Just trying to get some insight on it from people other than the folks I deal with down there.


Your I.D. mentions 48 years in Maryland and 7 in NC. Are you 55 years old? That's how old I am. Did you go to Andover High School? I knew a Rick Martin there.

Other smaller cities, New Bern 29000, Kinston 22000, Elizabeth City 18000 and Morehead City/Beaufort together around 15-20000. Rest are smaller towns and communities.
The Wilmington Area's population is really about 400K. The only reason that doesn't show when you look it up is because the Office of Management and Budget decided to give Brunswick County to Myrtle Beach.
