Portion of Lyerly Road closing for bridge replacement

Work will get underway on a N.C. Department of Transportation project Monday to replace the bridge carrying Lyerly Road over Sills Creek just west of Salisbury.
Lyerly Road will close at 7 a.m. Monday, July 14 near the intersection of White Road. The road will remain closed to through traffic during construction of the new bridge, which is expected to be complete by 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5.
Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of Lyerly Road, but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points. Motorists traveling through the area will use the signed detour route along White Road, N.C. 150 (Mooresville Road) and Graham Road.
NCDOT encourages motorists to pay attention, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
Built in 1962, the existing bridge is reaching the end of its life cycle and needs to be replaced to meet current and future traffic demands. The new bridge will accommodate all traffic, including trucks and emergency vehicles, as it will not be subject to the load restrictions of the current bridge.
