Crews will begin a work on a Perquimans County bridge Monday morning, causing drivers to take an alternate route.
U.S. 17 Business will be closed at the Hertford drawbridge beginning at 7 a.m. and crews will begin a month-long maintenance project. Both directions of that portion of highway will be closed during the roadwork. Boat traffic will be open at the bridge daily from 6 p.m. through midnight.
The project is expected to be completed August 26.
