Bridge Preservation Project to Close Lanes on N.C. 210 in Onslow County Thursday, June 06, 2013

RALEIGH —Alternating lane closures on the N.C. 210 bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway near North Topsail Beach begin Sunday, June 16 at 7 p.m., as N.C. Department of Transportation crews begin bridge preservation work.

Nightly lane closures will occur from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. through the middle of February 2014. In addition, day time lane closures are possible Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., weather permitting.
 
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.  The $1.6 million contract was awarded to Lanford Brothers, Inc. of Roanoke, Va. in September 2012.  
 
During the project, crews will use high-powered jets of water to remove any deteriorated concrete. Once this hydro-demolition process is complete, crews will place a layer of latex-modified concrete on the bridge’s surface. The existing bridge was built in 1968, thus  maintenance and preservation are needed to keep the bridge in good condition.  This project will also involve repairs to the bridge’s concrete supports.
