NCDOT Selects New Design for Bridge Replacement Project on Old Cullowhee Road over Tuckasegee River in Cullowhee Wednesday, August 15, 2012

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has selected a new design for replacing the bridge on Old Cullowhee Road over the Tuckasegee River in Cullowhee.

The bridge will be replaced in its current location, with one lane of traffic remaining open during the project.

NCDOT chose this design option based on several factors, including strong public support, a lower overall project cost and less right-of-way acquisition associated with this design.

The replacement project is scheduled to start in the winter of 2015 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
