As work on the Bonner Bridge replacement project moves into its next phase, the North Carolina Department of Transportation will be closing the bridge several times during the overnight hours between 11 p.m. July 24 and 5 a.m. July 25. The closures are required for the repositioning of cranes and other building materials used for the project.
The process for the closures will be as follows:
By 5 a.m. July 25, traffic on the bridge will resume in both directions.
Please keep in mind that all these activities are weather and equipment dependent. NCDOT will notify the public if the closures need to be rescheduled.
NCDOT began the Bonner Bridge replacement project in March of 2016 and the new bridge is more than halfway through construction. The new bridge is expected to open to traffic in late 2018.
