Old Falls of Neuse Bridge Closing

Old Trusty Rusty in the early days!

With our new shiny bridge connecting Wake Forest homeowners to North Raleigh on Falls of Neuse Road many of us have forgotten about that trusty original bridge that many still use to access homes in the watershed area.  Well, those people are about to be inconvenienced for a bit.  By the end of this year DOT will be shutting the “Old Trusty Rusty”.  They will be replacing it with a new and improved version as well.  As much as I will dislike the inconvenience issue (as we live in the watershed) I am excited that it’ll be safe.  It sure has had a lot of additional traffic recently.  I do have one question though….we do we North Carolinians take so long to build bridges?  I mean really!!!!  It took well over a year to rebuild that little tiny one over on Jones Dairy Farm (Jenni, Paul, Susan….you know what I mean!).  “Old Trusty Rusty” will not be back in service until June of 2013 they are predicting!  TWENTY-THIRTEEN!  Wow.

Old Trusty Rusty!

My family will miss the bridge for a while and watching the kayakers and fishermen.  In the end I guess I should be happy that we live in such a growth area that requires these types of upgrades to our infrastructure.
