Notice of Public Hearing on Bridge Replacement Project BR-0102


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Stokes County Board of Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing in the Commissioners Chambers on Monday, April 22, 2024, located on the 2nd Floor of the Administration Building at 1014 Main Street Danbury, North Carolina at the beginning of the Regular Meeting which begins at 2pm. The Public Hearing will be conducted to receive citizen input concerning the NC DOT Construction and Bridge Replacement project: BR-0102, NC Highway 268 Bridge over Big Creek in the Westfield area of Stokes County.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has been working on the NC Highway 268 bridge replacement project and have right of way plans developed for the new re-location and design. This design proposes to leave the current bridge open to traffic during construction and construct the new bridge to the north of the existing bridge. The Board of Commissioners have requested this Public Hearing to receive citizen input on leaving the current bridge open and constructing a new one to the north or the impact that a Detour would impose if the current bridge is taken out and a new one built in its place.

The second option would require closing the road with an offsite detour and construction of a wider and longer bridge which includes widening of the roadway approaches to meet current roadway design standards. There would still be property impacts with this design, but details are not available at this time on what that may look like.

The public is invited to attend.

Amber Brown
Clerk to the Board
