Bridge Replacement Project Will Close Section of Montrose Road Until Early August Wednesday, April 03, 2013

RALEIGH — Work is scheduled to get under way on Monday, April 8, on an N.C. Department of Transportation bridge replacement project on Montrose Road, northwest of Raeford in Hoke County. A $444,445 contract was awarded Smith-Rowe, LLC of Mount Airy to replace the 62-year old bridge over Mountain Creek.

The bridge is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. That means that while it is still safe for travel, it is in deteriorating condition and requires extensive maintenance. The bridge was also built to lane width standards that are no longer used.

The project is expected to wrap up by Aug. 5. A signed detour will get drivers around the road closure, using Calloway, Army and McFarland Blue roads.

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.
