RALEIGH — A section of Pine Grove Church Road located southwest of Robbins in Moore County
will close for about six months, starting Monday, March 4, as a contractor for
the N.C. Department of Transportation begins replacing the bridge over Cabin
The 59-year-old bridge being replaced
is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. That means it
is safe, but has been in deteriorating condition and was built to bridge design
standards, such as lane width, that are no longer used.
The new bridge should be open for
traffic by Aug. 1.
The closure means a signed detour will
be in place. Drivers on nearby N.C. 24/27 will be directed to continue east
past its intersection with Pine Grove Church Road, then turn left onto Talc
Mine Road. A left turn on Spies Road will take vehicles back to Pine Grove
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction
information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. Updated travel
