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.
