The N.C. Department of Transportation will temporarily close a section of Eddins-Poplin Road in Aquadale at 9 a.m. Monday, June 3, weather permitting. Contractor J.T. Russell and Sons Inc. will start a $229,000 project to replace the bridge over South Ugly Creek.
Traffic will be detoured around the project from Eddins-Poplin Road to Cottonville Road to Rocky River Spring Road back to Eddins-Poplin Road.
The contractor should have the bridge open to traffic July 31, and can continue vegetation and reforestation work through January 2014.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
