Woodleaf Road bridge replacement to start Monday

Construction is scheduled to start Monday on replacing the aging Woodleaf Road bridge over North Second Creek with a new bridge.
As part of the project, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close Woodleaf Road between Godbey Road and Goodson Road, starting at lunchtime Monday . The closure will remain in place until Dec. 31. During that time, motorists must take the following signed detour routes around the work zone:
• Traveling east: Take N.C. 801 South to Statesville Boulevard to Woodleaf Road.
• Traveling west: Take Statesville Boulevard to N.C. 801 North to Woodleaf Road.
A $1.3 million contract for the project was awarded to Lee Construction Company of the Carolinas Inc. of Charlotte. Construction is scheduled to be complete by May 29, 2013.
The existing bridge was built in 1955 and has a sufficiency rating of 2 out of 100. That does not mean the bridge is unsafe, the state agency said. It means the bridge was not built to modern design standards and no longer meets the needs of today’s drivers. Replacing the bridge will improve safety, make traffic flow more efficiently and extend the life of the local transportation network.
Motorists may experience some traffic congestion during construction.
