Yadkin River bridge progresses

The Yadkin River Bridge, which has been named among the state’s most substandard bridges by AAA Carolinas will be replaced by the new bridge that is under construction.
The bridge connects two of the biggest metropolitan regions in North Carolina, with about 60,000 cars and trucks on the route between Charlotte and Greensboro using it every day.
The U.S. Department of Transportation gave the go-ahead in July 2010 to begin construction on the Interstate-85/Yadkin River Crossing project. Completion of the first phase of the project is set for January 2013.
The project will relieve congestion by reducing a significant interstate bottleneck and improving travel for area residents and businesses located in Rowan and Davidson counties.
