Project Description 

Along with replacement of the bridge on Concord Avenue over U.S. 74/N.C. 200 in Monroe the project design proposes to:

  • Add sidewalks and curb and gutter on both sides of Concord Avenue
  • Lengthen westbound acceleration lane from 100' to 750'
  • Lengthen eastbound acceleration lane from 100' to connect with U.S. 601 off ramp lane
  • Resurface U.S. 74 under and around project limits
  • Raise structure height to current standard vertical clearance for U.S. 74 traffic

Detour Route 

The new bridge will be replaced at the existing bridge location with traffic being detoured offsite during construction. The detour route will follow Skyway Drive/U.S. 601 between IB Shive Drive and U.S. 74, as illustrated below. Construction is anticipated to last 12 months.

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.
