A drainage pipe failure under Sedwick Road will close the road for several
weeks about 1,000 feet east of Grandale Drive in southern Durham County. The

deterioration of the shoulder that it was determined it was not safe to leave
the road open at the site.
is under way for replacing the pipe, but the repair job is expected to take
several weeks. In the meantime, a detour route will have motorists using
Grandale Drive, Barbee Road, N.C. 54 and N.C. 55 to get around the closure.
reminds motorists to watch signs for road closure and detour information, stay
alert and obey the posted speed limit.
