FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Work is planned to begin next week to replace the bridge on High Point Road over Abbott’s Creek in Forsyth County.

Built in 1920, officials said the 94-year-old bridge is one of the oldest in the state.

Officials said crews will close High Point Road between Curry Road and Pine Meadow Drive on Monday.

The road will be closed to traffic during construction, which is expected to be complete by Nov. 1, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of High Point Road, but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points on either side of Abbott’s Creek.
