Raleigh To Do Its First Hydo-Demo Bridge Preservation Project, Brings Lane Closures

Work for Two bridge preservation projects begins Oct 19, weather permitting

On Oct. 19 the City will begin its first-ever, hydro-demo bridge preservation project in the Crabtree Creek area.

In order to the work, there will be some lane closures for segments of Six Forks Road, Glenwood Avenue and Anderson Drive. The two bridges that will be worked on are:

  • Lassiter Mill Road Bridge #334, located on Lassiter Mill Road over Crabtree Creek between Six Forks and Glenwood; and
  • Anderson Drive Bridge #343, located on Anderson Drive over Crabtree Creek between Glenwood Avenue and Six Forks Road.

Lane Closures

Traffic control setup and mobilization begins Monday, Oct. 19, with much of the work beginning on or around Monday, Oct. 26.

  • There will be no road closures, but traffic will be reduced to one lane throughout construction at both locations.
  •  Work will be performed 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Monday – Friday). Traffic cones/barrels and signs will be in place to inform motorists of the temporary traffic patterns.

The bridge preservation projects are expected to be completed by the end of January 2021. Schedules are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen conditions. The contractor for these projects is Buckeye Bridge, LLC.

About Hydro-Demo

Hydrodemolition uses ultra-high-pressure water to remove the top surface of deteriorated concrete. The surface will be replaced with a latex-modified concrete overlay. Bridge roadway approaches and shoulders will also be milled and replaced with new asphalt. This project is being done through Transportation’s Bridge Management Program.
