RALEIGH —Work is scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 21 on an N.C. Department of Transportation bridge replacement project on Galloway Road in Bolivia.
In addition to a new bridge, the project also calls for improvements to the roadway on both sides of the bridge. The project should be completed by Feb. 27, 2014.
During the closure, motorists should use the following signed detour route:
- Galloway Road to Randolphville Road to U.S. 17 back to Galloway Road.
The existing bridge, which was built in 1966, is deemed structurally deficient. This means the bridge is safe, but it needs to be replaced to meet current and future traffic demands.
This project is part of the department’s State-Funded Bridge Improvement Program to improve the overall condition of the state’s bridges. The department is investing $810 million over four years to strategically perform preservation or rehabilitation work when possible
