The N.C. Department of Transportation
this morning has closed a section of Corbett Avenue in Wilson so crews can replace a crossline drainage pipe near London Church Road in preparation of a road resurfacing project later this spring. The road will reopen to traffic the afternoon of Thursday, April 4. Corbett Avenue will be closed to through traffic between London Church Road and Ward Boulevard with a signed detour in place. Traffic will take London Church Road, N.C. 42/Herring Avenue and Ward Boulevard to travel around the construction site. Local traffic will be able to access businesses and residences on Corbett Avenue from Ward Boulevard; however, they will not be able to travel past the construction site near London Church Road. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
