Bridge Preservation Work Begins on N.C. 133 in Oak Island
Work scheduled to begin next week, will continue in spring
RALEIGH –N.C. Department of Transportation crews will begin a bridge preservation project next week on the N.C. 133 bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in Oak Island. The work will preserve the bridge deck and extend the lifespan of the bridge by 20 years.
During the project, all travel lanes will remain open, but be narrowed by 10 feet and motorists should not travel faster than 25 miles per hour.
This portion of the bridge preservation project is expected to be completed by Friday, Dec. 20.
To rehabilitate and preserve the 41-year-old bridge, an epoxy overlay will be placed on the bridge’s driving surface. This enhancement will help the bridge last longer by sealing and protecting the deck and substructure from water damage.
Lane closures will begin in the spring of 2014 when crews begin substructure repairs and repaving as part of the preservation work.
This project is part of the department’s State-Funded Bridge Improvement Program to improve the overall condition of the state’s bridges. The department is investing $810 million over four years to strategically perform preservation or rehabilitation work when possible. In this instance, replacing the bridge is a more feasible investment.
NCDOT urges motorists to use caution when traveling in the work zone.
