In brief: Yes
A carotid bruit is due to turbulent flow from a blockage in the carotid artery.
The natural course of carotid disease / atherosclerosis is progression over time. This is especially true if people still smoke. When the blockage in a carotid artery becomes near occlusive, the flow rate drops and the bruit typically goes away.
