Project Overview

The project proposes to construct the replacement bridge on existing location with an offsite detour.  Old Mill Creek Road SE is anticipated to be closed at the project location for up to 12 months during construction, which is scheduled to begin in January 2023.
Traffic will be detoured during construction onto Swain Road (S.R. 1517), Funston Road SE (S.R. 1518), and N.C. 87 for approximately three miles. The proposed bridge will be approximately 100 feet long and 30 feet-10 inches wide and will include two 11-foot travel lanes and paved shoulder on the outside travel lane.

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
