RALEIGH — The N.C. Department
of Transportation will hold an informational workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. on
Tuesday, March 12, on the proposed replacement of the bridge on Chestnut Cove
Road over Chestnut Cove Creek in Swain County. The workshop will take place at the
Smoky Mountain Country Club, located at 1112 Conleys Creek Road in Whittier.
NCDOT proposes to replace the existing bridge with a wider
structure that meets current design standards. The new bridge will have
9-foot-wide travel lanes. The existing bridge was built in 1962 and needs to be
replaced due to its age and condition. Construction of the new bridge is
expected to begin in April.
The public is invited to attend at any time during the
workshop hours to speak individually with NCDOT officials and review project
plans. There will not be a formal presentation. The opportunity to submit
written comments or questions will be provided.
For additional information, contact Virginia Mabry, NCDOT
Transportation Program Management Unit – Priority Projects Office, at (919)
707-6604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Americans with Disabilities Act for people with disabilities who want to
