NCDOT Contractors to Replace Shive Road Bridge in Rowan County Wednesday, August 13, 2014

GREENSBORO – Work starts Monday, Aug 18, at 7 a.m., on an N.C. Department of Transportation  project to replace the Shive Road bridge over a tributary of Second Creek near the intersection of Shuping Mill Road, just south west of Rockwell.

Motorists will still be able to access residences and businesses on either side of the bridge construction area, up to the points of closure along Shive Road. The work is expected to be complete by Nov. 28.

During the closure, motorists will use Shuping Mill Road, Old Beatty Ford Road and Organ Church 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.

Built in 1960, 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.
