Fayetteville, N.C. — The Morganton Road bridge is expected to reopen to traffic on July 31, North Carolina Department of Transportation officials said Wednesday.
Officials closed the bridge over the All-American Freeway for the $11.8 million project in January.
Transportation officials said the closure was necessary to replace the aging bridge.
The Morganton Road bridge is one of the most heavily-traveled in Fayetteville. Officials estimate 55,000 vehicles cross the roadway each day.
