Work is scheduled to start Monday, Feb. 18, weather permitting, on a N.C. Department of Transportation project to
replace a bridge on Osborne Road, southwest of Rockingham in Richmond County.
The 45-year-old bridge carries traffic over Baggett's Creek.
replacement project means the road will be closed between east of U.S. 1 and
Sandhill Road through late April. A detour route will be in place, with drivers
using Sandhill Road, U.S. 1 and Hamer Mill Road to get around the closure.
reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and
obey the posted speed limit. Updated travel information is also available by
calling 511 or online at www.ncdot.gov/travel. In
addition, NCDOT now offers travel information on Twitter.
