Murphy’s Creek Road, Rocky Creek Bridge, replace bridge

Rocky Creek Bridge is being replaced to improve safety, traffic flow, flood immunity and efficiency.

Rocky Creek Bridge was originally built in 1928.

The new two-lane concrete bridge will better support local traffic by improving safety, flood immunity and traffic flow on Murphy’s Creek Road. The project also includes realignment of Murphy’s creek Road to connect the new bridge to the existing road network. The current bridge will remain open and will be decommissioned once the new bridge is operational.
