Moore County Bridge Replacement Project on Camp Easter Road Starts Tuesday, Sept. 3 Wednesday, August 28, 2013

RALEIGH — An N.C. Department of Transportation bridge replacement project starts Tuesday, Sept. 3, on Camp Easter Road southwest of Vass, Moore County. A $517,794 contract was awarded Smith-Rowe LLC of Mount Airy to replace the 59-year-old bridge over Mill Creek between Niagara-Carthage and Airport Roads.

The bridge is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. It remains safe to use, but is in deteriorating condition and needs to be replaced. It was also built to design standards no longer in use.

The new bridge is scheduled to be open by Dec. 18. In the meantime, a signed detour will be in place, sending motorists going northbound on Camp Easter Road left onto Niagara-Carthage Road and then right onto Airport Road back to Camp Easter Road. Drivers southbound on Camp Easter Road will follow that route in reverse. That section of roadway handles about 550 vehicles a day.

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.
