New Grimesland Bridge Road To Open Soon After Years Of Construction

Grimesland Bridge Road will be closed starting Monday for a week in preparation for the opening of the brand new bridge that connects Highway 33 and Highway 264.

The DOT estimated the bridge will cost about $16 million. Dwayne Alligood with the Department of Transportation says $15 million has been spend so far.

Before the bridge opens crews will pour asphalt next week connecting the bridge to the current road.

For one homeowner she hopes once it is all complete drivers will be cautious.

"Children.... considering we are really close to the road, I am sure they will get out in the front yard eventually and I sure don't want my children hit by vehicles passing and flying go much faster than they should," said Diana Bradshaw.

The DOT says the road is expected to be open by 5:00 p.m. on Monday March 14th depending on weather.
