Wilmington - All lanes will be closed on U.S. 701/Hobbton Highway between Carr Church Road and Wilson Road starting at 7 a.m. Wednesday, April 8, and ending by 7 a.m. on Thursday, April 9, weather permitting.
The closure is necessary to allow crews with the N.C. Department of Transportation to replace a drainage pipe. The current pipe is undersized and in need of repair. Drainage pipes are important for directing water under a road and away from the road surface.
A signed detour will guide traffic from Suttontown Road to West Darden Road and Hunter Road. Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
