RALEIGH — Repair work on the Fowler Road Bridge over Moccasin Creek north of
Zebulon in Wake County will temporarily close the bridge until late this month.
The 56-year-old timber bridge is having some of the older timbers on the
structure replaced. The bridge is listed as structurally deficient, which means
it is safe, but it is requiring more extensive maintenance. It is scheduled to
be replaced in a few years.
The closure means a signed detour is in place. Drivers on Fowler Road
are being directed to use Dukes Lake Lane, Country Club Road, Furney Pearce
Road and Henry Baker Road to get around the closure.
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 www.ncdot.gov/travel.
