Cumberland County Bridge Work Requires South Detour

FAYETTEVILLE – A section of Interstate 295 South is scheduled to ​close this weekend for bridge maintenance.

The bridge over Carvers Creek, which is near the Cape Fear River, will be closed from 6 p.m. March 24 until 6 p.m. March 26.

This project is weather-dependent, so if there are showers Saturday, this work may be postponed and rescheduled later.

As a result, southbound drivers will be detoured to take the the River Road exit. They will travel south on River Road to Middle Road, then onto U.S. 301/I-95 Business to Grove Street; then north on Ramsey Street (U.S. 401), if they want to continue on I-295 South.

The bridge maintenance department for the N.C. Department of Transportation will do a combination of repairs and replacements of the expansion joints, which help provide a smoother ride and protects the girders supporting the driving deck.

Drivers should seek an alternate route, or plan for a longer trip if using the detour.
