Rowan Street Bridge (Fayetteville)
NCDOT Project # B-4490
Type: Bridge Replacement
Affected Counties: Cumberland
Estimated Cost: $36,385,000
The Rowan Street Bridge Project is an initiative by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to replace the "structurally obsolete" bridge along NC 24-210 (Rowan St. - Bridge #116) that passes over Hillsboro Street, the CSX Railroad, and the Norfolk Southern Railroad in downtown Fayetteville.
In conjunction with this project, the DOT plans to close the existing connector from Bragg Boulevard to NC 24-210 and create a new intersection that connects Bragg Blvd, Murchison Road NC 24-210 (Rowan Street).
Rowan Street will also be widened to six lanes, with sidewalks and other enhancements on both sides.
The following is a video of what the proposed improvements will look like, once the project is complete (produced by the City of Fayetteville):
Homes and businesses will have to be relocated for this project, according to the NCDOT.
This project ranked 10th on the Top 20 Bridge Projects in NC in 2012 and has already been funded.
