Project Highlights

NCDOT Project BR-0093 proposes to replace the bridge on U.S. 29 / U.S. 70 over W. 5th Avenue (S.R. 1192) in Lexington.  The project will remove the existing bridge and replace them with new bridge in the existing location. The proposed bridge will include:

  • Two 12-foot travel lanes
  • 5-foot paved outside shoulders
  • During construction there will be an off-site detour route.

  • The detour route includes U.S. 220, U.S. 220-Business, and Janet Road

​Project History

The bridge was constructed in 1965 and has been identified for replacement by NCDOT’s Structures Management Unit. Project Development began in 2018.

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.
