Detour signs are posted around the area of West Main Street between Buchanan Boulevard and Swift Avenue at Broad Street as crews work on a state bridge replacement project. The area is expected to be closed for the next five months.
The NCDOT will totally demolish the 63 year old bridge which is old and outdated. The bridge which is located over Campus Drive by Duke University’s campus, will be rebuilt to current safety regulations.
The new bridge will include a higher clearance underneath and the addition of bike lanes.
