NCDOT to Replace Bridge on Lake Woussicket Road in Forsyth County Tuesday, June 24, 2014

WINSTON-SALEM — Weather permitting, work will begin next week on an N.C. Department of Transportation project to replace the Lake Woussicket Road bridge over Red Bank Creek in Forsyth County.

On Monday, June 30, crews will close Lake Woussicket Road at Stafford Mill Road. The road will remain closed to through traffic during construction of the new bridge, which is expected to be complete by Monday, Oct. 13.

Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of Lake Woussicket Road, but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points on either side of Red Bank Creek. Motorists traveling through the area will use Baux Mountain Road and Dennis Road as the signed detour route. 

NCDOT encourages motorists to pay attention, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.

This project is part of the department’s overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state’s bridges. Built in 1964, 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.
