Today, North Carolina Department of Transportation crews closed an Iredell County bridge to begin a weeklong daytime construction project.
The Wood Bridge Road bridge that carries traffic over Third Creek will be closed in both directions daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. while crews examine the subsurface around the structure. Work is expected to be complete by August 31.
During the closures, traffic will use a detour following Highway 64 and Island Ford Road. Motorists should plan for delays due to the detour.
