Replacement of Slash Creek Bridge to Begin this Fall

​HATTERAS – Crews will begin the process of replacing the aging Slash Creek Bridge on N.C. 12 in Hatteras Village this fall, under terms of a $4.5 million contract awarded last week by the N.C. Department of Transportation. 

The 68-year-old bridge has been deemed structurally deficient due to deteriorating substructure conditions.

The contract, awarded to Smith-Rowe LLC of Mount Airy, N.C., calls for construction to begin no sooner than Sept. 9, 2024 and end no later than May 22, 2025.

N.C. 12 will be closed to through traffic in Hatteras Village when the project begins. A detour route will be established on Eagle Pass Road, which will be resurfaced both before and after the bridge is replaced.
