Project Details

  • The existing bridge will be replaced in place with a new, two-lane bridge. 

  • An off-site detour, 14 miles long, will be required during construction of the bridge. The detour route will follow Janiero Road to Buckland Road to N.C. 306 to Kershaw Road back to Janiero Road (see below). 

  • Dawson’s Creek Beach Access may be temporarily closed or inaccessible during construction, which will take approximately one year.

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
