NCDOT to Begin Bridge Replacement Project Next Week in Alleghany County Monday, April 07, 2014

SHELBY – Beginning Monday, April 14, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close Osborne Memorial Road in Alleghany County to replace a bridge over Elk Creek.

The existing structure was built in 1962 and is considered functionally obsolete and structurally deficient, meaning that although the bridge is safe it was built to design standards no longer in use and needs to be replaced.

During construction, an off-site detour will be in place to help motorists navigate the closure. The detour will utilize N.C. 93 and Mount Carmel Road.

The new bridge is scheduled for completion in early November.

Smith-Rowe, LLC of Mount Airy was awarded the $808,038 contract for the project in February.
