RALEIGH — Traffic on both sides of Interstate 77 south
of Jonesville in Yadkin County may see delays through Labor Day due to bridge
deck repairs near mile marker 71 over North Hunting Creek.
Penhall Company of Riverside, Calif. is performing hydro-demolition work
on the surface of the bridge and will replace the deck overlay using a latex
modified concrete. Work also includes replacing the guardrails and repairing
the bridge expansion joints.
Crews will close one lane in each direction for repairs. Traffic will
then shift onto the completed lanes. Currently, the outside lanes are closed
in each direction.
Traffic can take the following
alternate routes around the work zone:
- South: Take Exit 79 (U.S. 21), turn right at the
bottom of the exit ramp. Turn right onto N.C. 901 North and take the ramp to get
back onto I-77 at mile marker 65.
- North: Take Exit 65 (N.C. 901), turn right and turn
left onto U.S. 21 North. Take ramp on left to re-access I-77 at mile marker 79.
