N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will replace the bridge on Staley Store Road over Greenbrier Creek near Snow Camp in Alamance County.
Beginning Monday, Feb 2, crews will close Staley Store Road in both directions. Motorists will still be able to access residences and businesses on either side of the bridge construction area.
Construction should be complete by Friday, May 22.
Motorists can use the signed
detour route along Staley Store Road to Hinshaw Shop Road to Silk Hope Liberty Road to Staley Snow Camp Road to Pleasant Hill Church Road and back to Staley Store Road. They are advised to use caution in the area and allow additional travel time to reach their destination 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 1955 and 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 the weight restrictions of the current bridge.
