Pitt County Bridge Will Be Replaced

GRIMESLAND – The bridge spanning Chicod Creek on South Grimesland Bridge Road is scheduled to close this week, so the bridge can be replaced.​

An N.C. Department of Transportation contractor will close the site around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday and begin to demolish the 47-year-old bridge, then build a modern structure.

The new bridge is expected to open to traffic by the end of this year.

The 7.3-mile detour will send drivers on Boyds Road, Blackjack Grimesland Bridge Road, Chicod Street, Pitt Street and Beaufort Street.

Drivers should be cautious near the work site and plan for a longer commute using the detour.
