NCDOT update: Lenoir County road to close for pipe repair

N.C. Department of Transportation maintenance crews plan to close a Lenoir County road for about two weeks to replace a pipe.

A section of the northbound side of Eric Sparrow Road, near Davis Mill Road, will be closed to allow crews to safely replace a pipe damaged during Hurricane Florence with a larger culvert.  The upgraded pipe will prevent future flooding of the highway.

Construction is expected to begin by 8 a.m., Monday, and end by 5 p.m., Friday, Aug. 30.

Detour signs will direct drivers to use Eric Sparrow Road, Gray Branch Church Road, N.C. 11 and Liddell Road.

Traffic should only be mildly affected, and drivers should use caution while using detour routes.
