Shelby - As part of a continuing effort to improve and update the state's infrastructure system, the
N.C. Department of Transportation will close a Cleveland County bridge near U.S. 74 beginning Monday, Jan. 26, for maintenance.
The bridge on Bethlehem Road over Beason Creek, just west of Kings Mountain, will be closed until late February. A signed detour will direct southbound motorists to take Barrett Road to Range Road, then to Bethlehem Church Road to return to Bethlehem Road. Northbound motorists will reverse the detour.
