Project Highlights

The purpose of this project is to replace Bridge No. 208 on Village Road NE over Sturgeon Creek.  The current bridge is 101 feet long with a roadway width of 33.8 feet.  The replacement structure would be a 24-inch cored slab bridge approximately 130 feet long providing a 45-foot clear deck width.  The bridge will include two 12-foot lanes, 3- to 4-foot shoulders, a 10-foot 9-inch multi-use path (MUP), separated from travel lanes by a one-foot wide concrete divider, and a two-bar metal barrier rail.  The roadway grade of the new structure will be approximately the same as the existing structure.

An off-site detour will be used to maintain traffic during construction. The off-site detour is approximately 5 miles in length and uses Old Fayetteville Road, Lanvale Road, and Village Road.  A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Lanvale Road and Village Road/Fletcher Road to help with the off-site detour.  The traffic signal will remain in place after completion.

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. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
