NCDOT to Conduct Immediate Bridge Repair in an Effort to Avoid Impact to Holiday Travel Along I-85 Near N.C. 47 in Davidson County Friday, June 27, 2014

WINSTON-SALEM — On Monday June 30, N.C. Department of Transportation crews will begin repairing the approach to the Swearing Creek on the southbound lanes of I-85 in Davidson County, which is expected to have a high impact on traffic during construction; but avoid potential added back-ups during Fourth of July roadway travel.

Two of the three southbound lanes of Swearing Creek Bridge will need to be closed during construction.

Weather permitting, crews will begin work daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday and complete the project by 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 2.  The stretch of impacted roadway will be between (Exit 88) and (Exit 91) near N.C. 47 on I-85 in Lexington.
