Reopening of Glover Road delayed
Glover Road southeast of Salisbury remains closed due to weather delays, as N.C. Department of Transportation crews continue to replace the bridge over Crane Creek.
Work began at 7 a.m. on Monday, July 27, and the road was scheduled to reopen to traffic by Friday, Nov. 13.
The roadway is now scheduled to reopen on Friday, Nov. 20 at 5 p.m.
Built in 1966, the existing bridge was functionally obsolete, had reached the end of its life cycle and needed to be replaced to meet current and future traffic demands, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.
Local traffic has been able to access homes and businesses at either end of Glover Road but can’t pass beyond the closure points on either side of the bridge. Motorists have been using Old Concord Road and St. Paul Church Road as the signed detour route.
