Will this bridge get replaced?

Not likely.  Since NCDOT Rail Division manages the entire railroad crossing program (including grade separations), these types of overpasses don't generally qualify for the same type of improvements I've seen in other states.  If trucks keep hitting the overpass (in this case, the protective I-beam), that often drives the railroad crazy and may result in a clearance improvement project similar to the famous Gregson Street "canopener" bridge in downtown Durham.  See 11foot8.com for more fun details on this topic.

Agreed.  There is a clearly signed truck route in this case.  Also this is a small town so there is likely not many trucks using that route.  And that bridge is more clearly a low clearance that it seems much less likely to not be noticed.

In Vance and Warren counties, when will the bridges be replaced?

I'm talking about I-85 btw.

They are old, and rundown.
