Winston-Salem - N.C. Department of Transportation contractors plan to begin replacing the Junior Order Home Road bridge over Swearing Creek next month, closing a portion of the roadway near Lexington.
Work will begin at 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 9. The new bridge should be open by August 2017.
Drivers will be able to detour around the work using Linwood-Southmont Road, I-85 and N.C. 8.
This project is part of the department's overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state's bridges.
