A new cable bridge connected New Hanover and Brunswick County is one step closer to reality.

Wednesday, planners presented conceptual designs for the Cape Fear Skyway to the state turnpike authority.

Still under discussion is the exact route. The idea is to connect US 17 in Brunswick County with Carolina Beach Road and Independence Boulevard in Wilmington with a cable bridge across the Cape Fear River, similar to the one in Charleston.

The new billion dollar bridge is still a ways off. It is expected to be open in 2017.
