N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will replace the 92-year-old bridge on Mosley Loop over Hogan's Creek near Madison in Rockingham County. The bridge is the fourth oldest in the county.
Beginning Monday, January 26, crews will close Mosley Loop in both directions. Motorists will still be able to access residences and businesses on either side of the bridge construction area, up to the points of closure.
Construction should be complete by Friday, May 29.
Motorists can use the signed
detour route along N.C. 704 to Mosley Loop. 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 bridge is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. That means while the bridge remains safe, it has been in deteriorating condition and had weight limits set which restricted the types of vehicles that could travel across it. The new bridge will be built to current design standards and will not have weight restrictions.
