Tuesday's shift moves traffic into two lanes
RALEIGH -The N.C. Department of Transportation will close two of the four lanes on the U.S. 421 bridge over Snow's Cut as part of a bridge deck preservation project beginning at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013.
There will be one lane of traffic in each direction over the bridge for approximately three months to allow for the completion of bridge deck preservation work.
This project is part of the department's State-Funded Bridge Improvement Program to improve the overall condition of the state's bridges. The department is investing $810 million over four years to strategically perform preservation or rehabilitation work when possible. In this instance, replacing the bridge is a more feasible investment.
NCDOT urges motorists to use caution when traveling in the work zone.
