Pineville Bridge to Close for 9 Months

PINEVILLE, NC — Drivers can expect traffic delays in Pineville for the next nine months.

The state DOT will start work next Tuesday to replace the South Polk Street Bridge over Little Sugar Creek. The old bridge has to be torn down before the new one is built.

The construction is expected to last through October. Drivers can use South Polk Street, Carolina Place Parkway and Highway 51 as alternate routes.
