Beaufort County is accepting bids from contractors to remove a deteriorating railroad trestle bridge over Huspah Creek, part of the defunct Seaboard Air Line railroad. The bids will be accepted through Feb. 24, according county engineering director Rob McFee. The pilings that support the trestle are weak, and the county closed access to the bridge and the Lobeco Fishing Pier that sits atop it in January. Officials also issued a warning to boaters to exercise caution in the area.
