DUPLIN COUNTY — Crews from the North Carolina Department of Transportation will be working on construction of a new bridge throughout this weekend, according to a release from the department.

A portion of a Duplin County Road will shift traffic for construction of a new bridge over Maxwell Creek. N.C. 11 will close between Sanderson and Landfill roads beginning Friday at 7 p.m. It will last until 6 a.m. on Monday.

“The closure will allow crews to prepare to shift traffic onto a temporary bridge,” the release states.

Drivers will be detoured to N.C. 24, Interstate 40 and West Charity Road, and use caution when proceeding through work zones.

NCDOT urges motorists to slow down and use caution near the construction site and plan accordingly for their commute.
