CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A section of Miranda Road is currently closed due to flood damage from the storms on August 5th.
During those storms, a bridge on Miranda Road was washed out near the intersection of Oakdale Road. The NC Department of Transportation was originally considering making repairs to stabilize the bridge, which would reopen the road in late September.
However, NCDOT officials released a statement this week that they will push back the date scheduled date of completion to March 31, 2012.
DOT officials decided to move the scheduled bridge replacement project forward instead of making costly short-term repairs to the bridge. Engineers determined that the needed repairs would cost about $80,000, almost 10 percent of the cost to build the planned replacement bridge.
Final plans need to be reviewed, and existing utilities will have to be relocated before a contract can be awarded, which is now scheduled for October.
The project will be bumped up 6 months, from March 2012 to October 2011. In the meantime the road will remained closed due to unsafe conditions.
Traffic will be detoured on to Beatties Ford Road and Sunset Road back to Miranda Road.
