Public Hearing Set for Brunswick County Bridge Replacement

Feedback welcome through July 28

SUPPLY – The public is invited to a virtual hearing with the N.C. Department of Transportation this week and then asked to submit feedback regarding a proposed amendment of the Juniper Creek game land, State Dedicated Nature Preserve in Brunswick County.

This amendment of the dedicated nature preserve is needed to replace the bridge over Muddy Branch on Makatoka Road. The amendment would provide a permanent drainage easement and temporary construction easement. A very small amount of right-of-way is needed for replacement of the bridge.

Project details, including maps of the proposal, can be found on the NCDOT project web page.

The formal presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday. Interested people can attend as shown below:
