STONEVILLE — The N.C. 770 bridge over U.S. 220 may be closed for several weeks while it is repaired, officials said Tuesday.
Officials said in a news release they believe a vehicle that was too big struck the bridge overnight, causing damage to a beam supporting the structure.
Bridge repairs could take several weeks, N.C. Department of Transportation said in the release.
During the closure, N.C. 770 West traffic will detour north on U.S. 220 South to return to N.C. 770.
Drivers traveling east on N.C. 770 will detour to U.S. 220 South to the U.S. 220 Business exit, where they can take U.S. 220 North to access N.C. 770.
Drivers in both directions should slow down when approaching the interchange, DOT officials said.
