Johnston County Bridge to be replaced this summer


North Carolina Construction News staff writer

A bridge on N.C. 210 west of Smithfield will be replaced with construction starting this summer.

Built during the Great Depression, the bridge spanning Middle Creek is nearing the end of its lifespan. Although the bridge has been maintained for safety, it has become functionally obsolete and structurally deficient, which means it requires extensive maintenance and has an antiquated design.

The N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) awarded the $3.2 million construction contract to Wilson-based S.T. Wooten Corp. last week.

The contractor is expected to start work in June to demolish the bridge and then replace it with a modern structure. Construction will last about 13 months.
