This project involves constructing a new highway bridge carrying Turner Road over the North Carolina Railroad (NCRR) tracks in Davidson County. The new bridge will reduce the risk of automobile/train collisions, improve safety for automobile and rail passengers, and reduce automobile and train traffic congestion.
This project is part of a series of improvements to the railroad between Thomasville and Lexington. This section of the NCRR is part of the busiest railroad corridor in North Carolina.
The project is among improvements to the NCRR corridor between Raleigh and Charlotte in order to increase railroad capacity, efficiency, and safety.
