The swing bridge that connects the mainland to Topsail Island has left fond memories in the minds of those who have crossed it. A pontoon bridge was used in the 1940s and early 50s. The bridge opened in 1955, and it brought delays when boats were passing through. It also opened the island to development. Now plans are underway to replace it with a 65-foot arch over the Intercoastal Waterway. The article includes memories of the bridge from people who have used it through the years.
