W. Innes St/Hwy 601 bridge near Catawba College now open

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - It should come as quite a relief to discover that the West Innes Street/Highway 601 bridge just below Catawba College in Salisbury is now open to traffic.

The bridge had been closed for replacement for months, forcing drivers to take detours through Meadowbrook and the Crescent.

DOT had told WBTV that it would be opened on Monday, September 9th, but the signs were moved late Saturday morning.
