Frye Bridge Rd Bridge Replacement (Clemmons)
NCDOT TIP # B-4741
Project Type: Bridge Replacement
Affected Counties: Davidson
Estimated Cost: $4,000,000
In 2012, the NCDOT announced they would spend $20.9 million on the replacement or repair of 21 bridges Forsyth, Davidson, Stokes, and Rowan counties. One of these bridge replacements is the Bridge on Frye Bridge Rd (State Bridge #38 on SR 1493) over Muddy Creek in Clemmons (Davidson County).
The bridge replacement is for safety reasons.
According to the NCDOT Bridge Management Unit, the Frye Bridge Rd. Bridge has a sufficiency rating of 19.1 out of a possible 100 for a new structure. The bridge has a 60+ year-old timber substructure that's typically only supposed to last between 40-50 years, due to the natural deterioration of wood.
The project is being overseen by the NCDOT and the Winston-Salem Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). Of the alternatives studied, alternative three was selected.
According to the Department of Transportation, construction was initially planned for 2013, but the project has been delayed.
