NCDOT to Replace Bridge on Teague Road in Winston-Salem Tuesday, June 10, 2014

RALEIGH — Next week, the N.C. Department of Transportation will begin replacing the bridge carrying Teague Road over Fiddlers Creek in Winston-Salem.

Weather permitting, crews will close Teague Road near the intersection with N.C. 109/Thomasville Road on Monday, June 16.  The road will remain closed to through traffic during construction of the new bridge, which is expected to be complete by Monday, Nov. 3.

Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of Teague Road, but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points on either side of Fiddlers Creek. From Old Lexington Road, motorists will use Clemmonsville Road and N.C.109 /Thomasville Road as the signed detour route. Motorists on N.C. 109/Thomasville Road will use North Frontage Road, Clemmonsville Road and Old Lexington Road to detour around the closure.

NCDOT encourages motorists to pay attention, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.

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.
