GREENSBORO N.C. (WGHP) - A portion of a new bridge built over Interstate 40 near Guilford College Road and Bridford Parkway this past weekend was built two-inches shorter than planned, according to the DOT.
Over the weekend, crews blocked eastbound Interstate 40 near Guilford College Road for workers to begin building the first-half of the new Bridford Parkway bridge. The bridge is part of the $8.8 million DOT project.
According to the DOT, a contractor that surveyed the land several years ago did not correctly calculate how level the ground was. Due to the miscalculation, the back-side of the bridge is only 16 feet 4 inches, two inches shorter than the original plan.
