Long-Sought Flyover Bridge About To Become Reality

Posted: January 20, 2013 at 4:17 a.m.

Traffic travels Thursday along North College Avenue in Fayetteville past a portion of the roadway that will soon undergo improvement to construct a bridge to allow northbound traffic to reach the expressway and Interstate 540 without making a U-turn at Joyce Boulevard as well as being able to access a developed area on Mall Avenue and Shiloh Drive.

Work is set to begin at the end of the month on a flyover bridge in north Fayetteville that has been on wish lists for decades.

At A Glance


A flyover is an overpass usually used as an alternate route to what is beneath. Its purpose is to shorten travel time and ease traffic congestion. The term came from the British definition of overpass.
