Project Overview:

The N.C. department of Transportation proposes to replace and widen Bridge on Moonlight Road (S.R. 1003) over Tributary of Deep Creek in Halifax County. 

Project Highlights: 

The project proposes to replace Bridge over Moonlight Creek with a new bridge with two, 11’ travel lanes and 4 foot 5 inch shoulders. Paved shoulders on both sides expand to six feet as the travel lane approaches the bridge. The deck width of the bride is to be 33-feet. The project is expected to be implemented through an off-site detour. The off-site detour route includes Mary Chapel Road (S.R.1117), US 258/ Main Street and NC 125, for a total of
10.2 miles.
