Road Closure - Bridge Replacement Sawyers Creek Rd

The NCDOT and their Contractor ST Wooten plan to begin the upcoming project on SR 1200 Sawyers Creek Road in Camden County. This work will consist of the closing of SR 1200 Sawyers Creek Road 0.1 miles West of SR 1145 Lambs Road, removing the existing structure built in 1974, and replace with a new prestressed concrete core slab bridge structure. Our Contractor will be closing this portion of the roadway using advanced warning signs, and barricades beginning Monday July 10, 2017 with an estimated completion date of Friday November 17,2017.

Traffic affected by this closure may detour around the site by utilizing Lambs Road & Hwy 158 E (on the northern side) and Hwy 343 (on the southern side) to get around the closure.
