Bridge at Boone Heights Drive to undergo work

by Staff Reports

The N.C. Department of Transportation expects work to begin Monday on the outer lanes of the bridge on Blowing Rock Road near Boone Heights Drive.
The DOT awarded a $331,000 contract to NHM Constructors of Asheville to conduct the project, which will involve rehabilitating the two outside lanes with latex-modified concrete. The project is scheduled to be completed by July 19.

The three middle lanes were repaired last year. Those lanes were part of the original bridge that was built in 1947 and widened in the 1970s, according to the DOT.

Through traffic will be maintained at all times, but lanes will be shifted depending on which areas are undergoing work. Alternate routes are recommended.

Traffic heading north can turn right on Deerfield Road, left on State Farm Road and left on Shadowline Drive to get back to Blowing Rock Road. Southbound traffic can reverse directions.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

For more information on this project, please contact NCDOT Division 11 Resident Engineer Doug Eller at (828) 265-5088.
