The NCDOT is accepting public comments on the potential closure of South Queen Street for the bridge repair work. Two options still appear to be on the table:
1. Off-Site Detour – S. Queen is completely closed and all traffic is routed to Skinner’s Bypass at Hwy 70 and Hwy 11. Project is estimated to take 18 months and cost about $11.2 million.
2. On-Site Detour – Keeps one lane open during construction. Project is estimated to take about 36 months and will cost about $13.5 million.
