North Carolina's Department of Transportation will close Little River Road near Flat Rock in Henderson County starting April 2.

Crews will replace two bridges over Mud Creek near the intersection of Old Town Way. The road will reopen by October 1.

To get around the closure, drivers heading west on Little River Road should follow Berea Church Road to Crab Creek Road, then back to Little River Road. Traffic heading east will follow the route in reverse. 

The bridges were built in the 1960s and need to be replaced due to their age and condition. One of the bridges is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. While the bridge is still safe, it requires extensive maintenance and repair. Lane and shoulder widths also don't meet current standards.

The $1.3 million project contract was awarded to DeVere Construction Company of Raleigh.
