Broad Creek Bridge on U.S. 264 to Close for Six Months in Beaufort County Wednesday, June 05, 2013

RALEIGH — Beginning Monday, June 10 at 9 a.m., the North Carolina Department of Transportation will close the bridge on U.S. 264 over Broad Creek near Pantego for six months.
The bridge will be closed to all traffic from Monday, June 10 through Dec. 2 as crews construct a new bridge. The bridge, which was built in 1925, is deemed structurally deficient. Although still safe, it is in deteriorating condition and was built to bridge design standards that are no longer used.

During the closure, motorists traveling east on U.S. 264 should use the following signed detour:
  • Seed Tick Neck Road to N.C. 99 to U.S. 264 West/N.C. 99 back to U.S. 264
Motorists traveling from west on U.S. 264 should use the following signed detour:
  • U.S. 264 West/N.C. 99 to N.C. 99 to Seed Tick Neck Road back to U.S. 264
The $1.5 million contract was awarded to T.A. Loving Company of Goldsboro.

This project is part of the NCDOT’s $450 million state-funded bridge plan for 2011-13, which calls for preservation, repairs or replacement of bridges statewide. For more information on this plan, visit our Bridge Improvement Program webpage.
