A minor project update on the Future I-74 corridor in Robeson County.

https://www.ncdot.gov/news/press-rel...idge-work.aspx

Quote:
Drivers on U.S. 74 in Robeson County may encounter temporary roadblocks Tuesday night and Wednesday night when bridge girders are set for a new interchange.

An N.C. Department of Transportation contractor is converting the Broadridge Road intersection with U.S. 74 south of Lumberton into a grade-separated overpass with on and off ramps to improve safety and traffic flow.

The contractor needs to haul in and set a total of eight concrete-reinforced girders for the Broadridge Road bridge that will go over U.S. 74. Four will be set over the westbound lanes between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 6 the next morning. During that time, state Highway Patrol troopers will direct temporary roadblocks, lasting up to 30 minutes per girder.

The troopers and contractors will do the same procedure for the eastbound lanes on Wednesday night at the same time for the remaining four girders. There will be no detours for the roadblocks.

Work began in the fall of 2017. The new interchange is scheduled to open this fall.

Car crash helps speed bridge replacement - Rocky Mount Telegram

Quote:
An Alternate U.S. 64 bridge over a creek in rural Edgecombe County, which was the scene of a one-vehicle crash late last month, is closed until this summer for an already-scheduled replacement with a new crossing.

After a pickup truck careened into Penders Mill Run on Feb. 27, a state Department of Transportation spokesman said the bridge, which dates back to 1922, already had been deemed structurally deficient. The bridge is just west of Lake Valley Drive.

Transportation Department spokesman Andrew Barksdale said the crossing was closed on March 5 and is going to remain shut off to traffic until late June so crews with Smith-Rowe of Mount Airy can complete a nearly $1.3 million project.

A structurally deficient bridge means while a crossing remains safe for traffic, the present structure has components in poor condition requiring more frequent maintenance.

Barksdale said until the new bridge is completed, motorists using Alternate U.S. 64 must take either Northwoods Country Road or Raccoon Branch Road to Howard Avenue and to Harts Mills Run Road.

The N.C. Department of Transportation will host a public meeting regarding the proposal to extend a Morehead City road.

Bridges Street Extension would be extended to McCabe Road in Morehead City by widening an existing road, Business Drive, and constructing a segment in a new location. The project would reduce congestion along U.S. 70 and increase mobility. It would also provide a local connection and improve access to the business park along Business Drive. The January 2014 Carteret County Comprehensive Transportation Plan – Highways shows a need for the project.

Maps of the proposal area can be found at the NCDOT Public Meetings website.

The public meeting will be held on March 20 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Crystal Coast Civic Center at 3505 Arendell Street. Interested residents can drop in any time during the meeting to learn more about the proposal, have questions answered and talk with NCDOT representatives. There will not be a formal presentation.

Written comments can also be submitted by phone, email or mail and will be accepted through April 22.

​​​​​​​For additional information, please contact NCDOT Division 2 Project Manager Liz Workman at P.O. Box 1587, Greenville, NC 27835, (919) 854-6221 or lsworkman@ncdot.gov.

BOILING SPRING LAKES - A section of a Brunswick County road will be closed next week through mid-April for repairs from Hurricane Florence.

The N.C. Department of Transportation will close 0.2 miles of East Boiling Spring Road about one mile east of N.C. 87 at North Lake and Patricia Lake starting March 18. It will last through April 12.

The closure is needed so two 96-inch aluminum pipes can be installed under the road. As part of the repairs, crews will also work on grading, drainage, pavement removal and paving.

Traffic will be detoured onto N.C. 87 and Funston Road.

While a portion of the Boiling Spring Lakes road is expected to be closed for most of the project, intermittent lane closures are also possible. Drivers should anticipate needing extra time and slow down when approaching the work zone.

FRISCO – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of N.C. Highway 12 in Frisco from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 24 to replace two cross pipes under the road.

The closure will take place between Delmer Willis Road and Sunset Strip in Frisco. A marked detour route along the beach will be available for four-wheel drive traffic only between National Park Service ramps 48 and 49. Motorists using the detour are advised to follow the marked route and obey posted speed limits. There is no detour route available for vehicles without four-wheel drive.

The work will be performed as scheduled unless a major weather event occurs.

NAGS HEAD – During the week of March 18, contractors for the N.C. Department of Transportation will be installing gates and fences around the southern end of the Bonner Bridge and adjoining catwalks, as workers prepare for demolition work on the bridge. This will temporarily end public access to the bridge while the demolition takes place.

“It’s a safety issue,” said NCDOT Division One Engineer Jerry Jennings. “The south end of the old bridge will become a work zone for the next 10-12 months, so we need to keep the public out of harm’s way."

About 1,000 feet of the bridge will remain after the demolition process and be converted into a public walkway. That section is expected to reopen in 2020.​

Wilson County drivers soon will enjoy a better ride on sections of U.S. 301 and N.C. 581 and over 18 secondary routes that will be repaved.

The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded S.T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson a $4 million contract this month to mill, resurface and restripe a 5-mile section of U.S. 301 between the Nash County line and Haynes Road, as well as the stretch of N.C. 581 between U.S. 301 and the Wayne County line.

In all, 22.5 miles of roadway will be refreshed. The contractor may begin this month and has until July 2020 to complete all of the improvements.

I made the mistake of driving on 301 through Wilson last week on Sunday evening. I can't imagine managing that hot mess of a construction zone during rush hour...
