NCDOT closing Tyrrell intersection for bridge replacement today

CRESWELL, N.C. (WITN) – A bridge in Tyrrell County is being replaced, which will mean a road closure while the work is being done.

NCDOT said that they are closing an intersection near the Washington-Tyrrell County line southeast of Creswell Monday for a bridge replacement project.

An NCDOT contractor is replacing the South Fork Creek Road bridge over the Bonarva Canal on South Fork Creek Road near the Washington and Tyrrell County line.

The contractor will close the intersection of South Fork Creek Road and South Fork Loop Road at 7 a.m. July 3. The closure is expected to last until the end of September, depending on the weather.

A marked detour will direct drivers around the construction area during the closure.
