Vance County Bridge Closed; Replaced Next Year

N.C. Department of Transportation crews closed a Vance County bridge today due to the deterioration of its superstructure.  The Weldons Mill Road bridge over Sandy Creek was built in 1949 and is set to be replaced next year.  The department is scheduled to award a contract to replace the bridge in February.  Work would begin in March and be completed by the end 2021.  Traffic will use New Bethel Church, County Line, Southerland Mill and Vicksboro roads to get around the closure.  Drivers should be mindful of crews working in this area and factor the detour into their commutes.  For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on social media.
