BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - NCDOT crews will begin replacing the Hood Creek bridge on N.C. Hwy 87 on Monday, April 7.

The 41-year-old bridge has been declared structurally deficient and obsolete. 

The project will require the closing of two miles of N.C. Hwy 87 just north of Colon Mintz Road. The construction is estimated to take four months to complete.

Motorists can detour around the closure by taking U.S. 17 to U.S. 74/76 and back to N.C. 87 and vice versa. 

Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
