Work starts Monday, Aug 18, at 7 a.m., on
an N.C. Department of Transportation
project to replace the Shive Road bridge over
a tributary of Second Creek near the intersection of Shuping Mill Road, just
south west of Rockwell.
Motorists will still be able to access residences and
businesses on either side of the bridge construction area, up to the points of
closure along Shive Road.The work is expected to be complete by Nov. 28.
During the closure, motorists will use Shuping Mill Road, Old
Beatty Ford Road and Organ Church Road as the signed
. NCDOT encourages motorists to pay attention, obey the posted
speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
Built in 1960, the existing bridge is reaching the end of
its life cycle and needs to be replaced to meet current and future traffic
demands. The new bridge will accommodate
all traffic, including trucks and emergency vehicles, as it will not be subject
to the load restrictions of the current bridge.
