Closure in Clarkton will start Nov. 28

CLARKTON – A failing drainage pipe underneath N.C. 211 (West Green Street) in downtown Clarkton will require the road to close next week, so the pipe can be replaced.

State Transportation maintenance workers will replace the circular concrete pipe, which has deteriorating joints and causing damage to the pavement. A signed detour will direct through-traffic onto U.S. 701 Bypass and U.S. 701 Business, which intersects a mile to the north.

The closure will begin at 8 a.m. Monday, and crews hope to complete the work by Friday, Dec. 2, weather permitting.
