Volkert performed the construction engineering and inspection (CEI) for the reconstruction of the North Third Street bridge in Wilmington, North Carolina, as part of its Division 3 bridge program on-call CEI contract with the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The Third Street Bridge was originally built in 1920 and reconstructed in 1955. The new $4.6 million bridge, which opened to motorists and pedestrians in May 2016, includes four travel lanes and a fifth center turn lane, space to accommodate bicyclists, and extra-wide sidewalks for pedestrians.
