Bridge project at Richmond-Moore County Line Starts December 17 Tuesday, December 11, 2012

RALEIGH — Construction gets under way Monday, Dec. 17 on a $650,800 N.C. Department of Transportation project to replace the Patterson Road bridge over Drowning Creek at the Moore-Richmond County line, southwest of Pinehurst.

Eastern Structures LLC of Denton, N.C. was awarded the contract to replace the 57-year-old bridge, which is considered functionally obsolete. It remains safe, but was not built to current design standards and is unable to properly handle the volume of traffic it now carries.

Motorists will be using a signed detour to get around the project until it is completed in mid-May 2013. In Richmond County, drivers will go north on Sycamore Lane past the turn for Patterson Road, then turn:

  • Right onto Derby Road;
  • Right onto Currie Road;
  • Left onto Cedar Lane Road;
  • Right onto Richmond Road; and
  • Right onto Hoffman Road back to Patterson Road/Rose Ridge Road.

For drivers coming from Moore County, where Patterson Road changes to Rose Ridge Road, the detour is the same in reverse, starting north of the Hoffman Road-Patterson/Rose Ridge intersection.

For more information on this project, contact NCDOT Resident Engineer Chuck Dumas at (910) 944-7554.
