Road ClosingOPENINGS:

SR 1318 (River Road)

SR 1318 (River Road) opened late Thursday.


SR 1303 (Tobermory Road)

SR 1303 (Tobermory Road) is closed at NC 87 due to a failed crossline pipe / void under the road.  Work is scheduled to begin 7/24 and should be complete by the end of the first week in August.

SR 1178 (Richardson Road)

SR 1178 (Richardson Road) is closed between NC 211-Business (Seaboard St) and the CSX Railroad in order to replace several crosslines and install one new crossline.  This section of Richardson Road will be closed through 7/21/17.


US 701 North

Beginning Tuesday, July 18, we plan to close US 701 north at Colly Creek in order to perform a scour repair to the box culverts that were damaged during Hurricane Matthew.   The location is just south of SR 1514 (Mote Road).  While local traffic will be able to use Mote Road and NC 41 for access around the work site, the official detour route will be NC 41 and NC 210 in order to keep through trucks on routes with wider lane widths.  Work should be complete by the end of the month.
