UPDATE: The project has been delayed by a week and will start May 9, not the 2nd.
As the N.C. Department of Transportation begins to work on a bridge in Brunswick County, drivers are reminded to follow the detour signs as a portion of Maco Road (N.C. 87) will be closed.
Crews will demolish and rebuild the 50-year-old bridge over Batarora Branch in Brunswick County. The road will be closed to traffic over the next several months as work is set to begin Monday, May 2.
NCDOT expects to complete the $1.2 million project by fall and reopen the road.
Drivers in the vicinity will be detoured onto U.S. 74/76 and Interstate 140. Commuters should proceed with caution through the work zones.
