Bridge replacement to close road in August

Published 11:32 am Wednesday, July 13, 2016

N.C. Department of Transportation contractors plan to replace the bridge on Henderson Grove Church Road over Town Creek between South Main Street and Peach Orchard Road, closing a portion of the roadway.

Work will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15. The new bridge should be open by late December.

Motorists will navigate around the work using a  3.7-mile detour on Peach Orchard Road and South Main Street.

The Henderson Grove Church Road Bridge project is part of the department’s overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state’s bridges. The existing bridge is functionally obsolete and no longer meets the demands of the traffic using it.
