NCDOT to Close Craver Road in Davidson County for Bridge Replacement Friday, May 23, 2014

RALEIGH — Work will get underway next week on an N.C. Department of Transportation project to replace the bridge carrying Craver Road over Reedy Creek in Davidson County.

On Tuesday, May 27, weather permitting, crews will close Craver Road approximately one mile south of its intersection with Enterprise Road.  The road will remain closed to through traffic during construction of the new bridge, which is expected to be complete by Sunday, Aug. 24.

Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of Craver Road, but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points on either side of Reedy Creek. Motorists traveling through the area will use Dr. Zimmerman Road, Welcome-Arcadia Road and Pickett 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.

Built in 1960, 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.
