UPDATE: Road Closure for Bridge Replacement Project Postponed Friday, June 20, 2014

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has postponed a road closure that was scheduled to start Monday for a bridge replacement project over North Fork Crooked Creek Tributary on Steven’s Mill Road. Further information will be released as it becomes available.

The bridge was constructed in 1958 and is classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. This means it has remained safe for use, but is in deteriorating condition and needs to be replaced. The bridge was also built to design standards that are no longer in use.

Because of its condition, NCDOT posted a weight limit restricting single-axle vehicles and trucks weighing more than 15 tons from using the bridge. The new bridge will meet current design standards and will not have posted weight limits.

Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

For real-time travel information at any time, call 511, visit the NCDOT traffic website or follow NCDOT on Twitter. Another option is NCDOT Mobile, a phone-friendly version of the NCDOT website. To access it, type “m.ncdot.gov” into the browser of your smartphone. Then, bookmark it to save for future reference. NCDOT Mobile is compatible with the iPhone, Android and some newer Blackberry phones.
