Work set to begin in March on Cumberland road washed out by Matthew

Posted February 13

Fayetteville police said officers responded to a crash along a stretch of collapsed road on Bingham Drive near the intersection of Tiree Drive at about 4:10 p.m.

— Work will begin next month to repair a stretch of road in Cumberland County washed out by Hurricane Matthew.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation said Monday that it has awarded an express design-build contract for the repair of a culvert on Bingham Road near N.C. Highway 162.

A section of the road washed away during Hurricane Matthew, and the road has been closed since.

Sanford Contractors Inc. will complete the $1 million project, which should be finished by early August, DOT officials said.

A 68-year-old man was taken to the hospital in October after he crashed on Bingham Road when he drove around barriers that were blocking the washed out road. The man was later charged with driving around a barricade into a safety zone.
