NCDOT Project in Randolph County Means New Bridge for Bethel Friends Road Thursday, December 20, 2012

RALEIGH — Work is scheduled to start as early as Jan. 2 on a $447,547.70 N.C. Department of Transportation project to replace a bridge on Bethel Friends Road over Squirrel Creek in Randolph County.

The contract was awarded to APAC–Thompson Arthur Division of Greensboro to replace the 52-year-old bridge, located southeast of Asheboro. The bridge is in deteriorating condition and was originally built to standards no longer used.

The new bridge is scheduled to open by May 2. Drivers will be directed to use Grantville Lane and N.C. 42 to get around the construction site.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch for the road closure signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

Updated travel information is available by calling 511 or online. Another option is NCDOT Mobile, a phone-friendly version of the NCDOT website. To access it, type “m.ncdot.gov” into the browser of your smartphone. Then, bookmark it to save for future reference. NCDOT Mobile is compatible with the iPhone, Android, and some newer Blackberry phones.
