WARRENSVILLE – A contractor for the North Carolina Department of Transportation will begin replacing a bridge on N.C. 194 over the New River next month.
The replacement of the 69-year-old bridge is scheduled to begin the first week of April, with traffic shifting to a new one-lane traffic pattern.
New alignment pavement markings, temporary signals, and barricades will be in place to implement the long-term one-lane traffic pattern through the work zone.
The contractor, James R. Vannoy & Sons Construction Company, will be constructing the new bridge in halves, one lane at a time.
Once the first phase is completed, this one-lane pattern will be flipped to the new bridge so the existing bridge can be removed.
This $8.3 million project is expected to be completed late in the summer of 2024.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and use caution when approaching and driving through the work zone.
