Bridge repair to close part of 74/76 in Columbus County this weekend


RALEIGH, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- A section of US 74/76 East at Livingston Creek between Freeman and Delco in Columbus County will be temporarily closed from Friday at 6 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m., weather permitting.

The closure is necessary to repair the bridge approach on U.S. 74/76 East. Settling on both sides of the bridge has occurred, so workers will remove the dirt and replace it with concrete and repave the road.

Motorists traveling US 74/76 East will take the following six-mile signed detour route:
• NC 11 North to NC 87 South back to US 74/76.

Motorists traveling US 74/76 West from Wilmington to Lumberton will not be affected by the closure.
