Staley Store Road in Alamance County to Close for Bridge Replacement Friday, May 2, 2014

RALEIGH — Weather permitting, N.C. Department of Transportation crews will begin replacing the Staley Store Road bridge over North Prong Creek in Alamance County at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 5. The work will require the closure of Staley Store Road between N.C. 49 and Hinshaw Shop Road until Saturday, Aug. 2, when the project is scheduled to be complete.

During the closure, motorists will use N.C. 49 and Hinshaw Shop Road as the signed detour route. NCDOT encourages motorists to pay attention, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.

This project is part of the department’s overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state’s bridges. Built in 1963, the existing bridge is reaching the end of its life cycle and needs to be replaced to meet current and future traffic demands.  The new bridge will accommodate all traffic, including trucks and emergency vehicles, as it will not be subject to the load restrictions of the current bridge.
