ABERDEEN — The Roseland Road bridge that crosses Deep Creek west of Aberdeen is scheduled to close Monday, May 21.


A contract crew for the N.C. Department of Transportation will replace the 1950s-era bridge, which has become functionally obsolete for modern traffic and requires expensive maintenance. The new bridge is scheduled to open in September.


A detour will route traffic onto Hoffman and Rose Ridge roads.


This is one of two bridges in Moore County being replaced by Dellinger Inc. of Monroe under a $1.2 million contract. The other bridge, on Jackson Springs Road, opened this month.
