Raleigh - Beginning Feb. 9,
N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will replace the bridge over Jacobs Creek on McCollum Road, just north of Honeysuckle Road, near Wentworth in Rockingham County.
Construction should be complete by Friday, June 19.
Motorists will still be able to access residences and businesses on either side of the bridge construction area, up to the points of closure. Other drivers can use the signed
detour route on Webb Road. They are advised to use caution in the area and allow additional travel time to reach their destinations safely.
This project is part of the department's statewide
bridge program to improve the condition of the state's bridges. The current bridge was built in 1952 and was deemed structurally deficient. That means the bridge is still safe, but is in deteriorating condition and needs to be replaced.
