MOUNT PLEASANT — The N.C. Department of Transportation closed a bridge Wednesday on Mount Pleasant Road South over Adams Creek as a safety precaution.

NCDOT engineers inspecting the bridge after last week’s storms determined the concrete substructure was damaged.

The bridge will remain closed while engineers continue damage assessment and determine what repairs are needed. There is no time frame for when the bridge will reopen.

Drivers will be detoured around the closure using Cold Springs Road, N.C. 49 and N.C. 73, about 6.8 miles.
