Greensboro - N.C. Department of Transportation contractors plan to repair a portion of aging concrete bridge decks, columns, and repaint steel girders on the Altamahaw Union Ridge Road Bridge that crosses Lake Cammack in Burlington, closing down the road for three days.
Bridge improvement projects like this one are underway across the state as part of Governor McCrory's 25-Year Transportation Vision to enhance travel safety and to better connect North Carolinians to jobs, education, healthcare and recreation opportunities.
Work will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 17, and is expected to be complete by 6 a.m. on Monday, June 20.
Drivers will be able to detour around the work using Union Ridge Road and Stoney Creek Church Road.
Work on the Altamahaw Union Ridge Road Bridge is part of the department's overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state's bridges. Built in 1960, the existing bridge has aged and is in need of repair.
