ASHEVILLE -Rain has delayed
plans by the N.C. Department of
to temporarily close a section of U.S. 321 in Lenoir. The work, originally scheduled for tonight,
will now take place starting at 7 p.m. Monday,
April 20, weather permitting. Crews will block the road from Nuway Circle to
Seehorn Street while they replace a deteriorated pipe. It is scheduled to
reopen at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 21.
A marked detour will direct drivers
onto Creekway Drive and U.S. 64/N.C. 18 to return to U.S. 321.
