County Line bridge to be replaced

Published 9:36 am Thursday, August 23, 2018

Department of Transportation contract crews will start replacing the deteriorating County Line Road bridge that crosses Hunting Creek starting Monday, Aug. 27.

“While the bridge remains safe for travel, it was built in 1961 and by state standards is being scheduled for replacement,” said Assistant Resident Engineer Richard Ho.

A portion of the roadway between Sheffield Road and NC 901 will close at 9 a.m. Monday until work is complete no later than the end of March 2019.

Drivers will be able to access all points leading up to the closure but will be detoured in both directions using Sheffield Road, US 64 and NC 901.

Motorists must pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
