Bridge Replacement Closing Section of U.S. 264 Alternate East of Wilson

Raleigh - Drivers who use U.S. 264 Alternate to cross over Toisnot Swamp east of Wilson need to be ready to use a detour effective February 1. The highway will be closed at that location as the current 67-year-old bridge over the swamp is being replaced.

The project, being handled by Sanford Contractors, Inc. is part of a contract that calls for replacing five other bridges in Wilson County and two in Wayne County.

The work is expected to take 195 days from the start, with the expected completion date being in mid-August.

The signed detour in place has drivers coming from Wilson using N.C. 58 to reach U.S. 264 at exit 49, then traveling two miles east to get to the exit for U.S. 264 Alternate (Exit 51). Motorists heading toward Wilson can continue on U.S. 264 West to N.C. 58.

Drivers are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations because of the detour.
