NCDOT Bridge 216 over Buffalo Creek

North Carolina
In Progress

Bridge No. 216 was constructed in 1957. The two-span bridge is 51 feet long with a deck width of 25 feet. The structure type is timber floor on salvaged I-Beams.

Bridge No. 216 will be replaced in-place. The bridge is currently closed (closed since 2010); local traffic is diverted to an off-site detour. The proposed structure would be an 87.38-foot long two-span cored slab bridge. The bridge typical section is two 11-foot lanes with a 10-foot center turn lane, approximately four-foot bridge offset, and an eight-foot wide accommodation for future multi-use path on the south side of the bridge. The proposed design speed is 40 mph. The project overall length is approximately 600 feet.
