Another Pearson’s Falls Rd. bridge to be replaced

Published 12:58 pm Friday, September 17, 2010

Work on one bridge on Pearson’s Falls Road was just completed in July, and already the N.C. Department of Transportation is beginning the process of replacing another one.

The DOT is proposing to replace Bridge No. 4 over a small branch of the Pacolet River on Pearson Falls Road (State Road 1102). The existing bridge was built in 1960 and needs to be replaced because of its advanced age and deteriorating condition, according to a press release issued by the DOT.

Area residents are invited to give their opinions and ask questions regarding DOT’s plan to replace bridge No. 4 on Pearson Falls Road at a meeting Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Saluda Mountain Jamboree on Friendship Church Road in Saluda.
