Bridge Replacement Project Means a Five-Month Closure on Dover Church Road near Robbins Monday, November 26, 2012

RALEIGH — Motorists who travel on Dover Church Road west of Robbins will need to use a detour starting this week, as an $880,571 N.C. Department of Transportation bridge replacement project gets underway. The project will replace the 62-year-old bridge over Bear Creek. It is considered functionally obsolete, which means although it is safe, it was not built to current design standards and is unable to properly handle the volume of traffic it now carries.

The project is expected to be completed by April 26, 2013. In the meantime, eastbound drivers will be detoured around the closure by turning right on Dan Road, then left on N.C. 705, and left onto Dover Church Road. Drivers wanting to go west on Dover Church Road will need to turn onto Dan Road off N.C. 705 and that will take them around the closed section of roadway.

For more information on this project, please contact the NCDOT resident engineer’s office in Asheboro at (336) 318-4020.  

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. Updated travel information is also available by calling 511 or online at In addition, NCDOT now offers travel information on Twitter.
