The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to replace the bridge on Sheppard Mill Road over the Dan River in Stokes County.
The bridge has become structurally deficient. The fact that a bridge is "structurally deficient" does not imply that it is likely to collapse or that it is unsafe. It means the bridge must be monitored, inspected and repaired/replaced at an appropriate time to maintain its structural integrity.
A public meeting is scheduled for:
