CHARLOTTE -A section of Beatties Ford Road will be
closing at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 20, as a N.C.
Department of Transportation bridge replacement project gets underway.
The project will replace a 40-year-old
functionally obsolete bridge that was built using design standards no longer
used with a structure that can better handle the increased traffic volume along
Beatties Ford Road. The new bridge is expected to be open by September 17.
Message board signs about the closure have
been activated. Vehicles will be detoured around the project site by using
Sunset Road, Reames Road and Lakeview Road. For more information, please
contact the division bridge program engineer at (704) 983-4400.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for
construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. For more
