Staff report

MOUNT ULLA — N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will begin work Monday replacing the Belk Road bridge between U.S. 801 and Centenary Church Road near Mount Ulla.

DOT says the existing bridge no longer meets the needs of modern-day traffic.

A portion of the road will close at 8 a.m. Monday and remain closed until work is complete in September, weather permitting.

Drivers will be able to detour around the closure using Centenary Church Road and N.C. 801 South in both directions.

The project is part of the department’s program to improve the condition of the state’s bridges.

DOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
