New Bridge Brings New Commute for Drivers in Northern Rockingham County

STONEVILLE – Drivers near the Virginia state line will soon see detour signs as N.C. Department of Transportation contractors work to replace the aging Snead Road bridge over Buffalo Creek.

“Built in 1955, the wooden guardrails and design of the original bridge no longer meet modern-day standards,” said Division 7 District Engineer Jason Julian.

The portion of road will be closed at 8 a.m. Monday, June 19, until work is complete on Friday, Oct. 27, weather permitting.

Motorists will use Price Grange Road and Barnes Road in both directions to detour around the closure.

Local traffic will still be able to access locations on either side of the bridge up to the point of closure.

This project is part of the department’s overall bridge program to improve the condition of the state’s bridges and ensure the safety of drivers who rely on them.

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