Road Closure Due to Construction on U.S. 501 in Robeson County
Raleigh - As part of the McCrory Administration's effort to improve road safety, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close part of U.S. 501 South in Robeson County next week due to construction.
The road closure north of Rowland is scheduled to begin Monday, May 23, at 8 a.m. and is expected to end on Friday, May 27, at 3 p.m. The closure is needed so contractors can install a cross-line pipe under the road for a cost of $249,093.30.
The overall completion date for the project is August 1. The remaining work, for which road closures will not be needed, will involve grading and paving to adjust the elevation on the roadway.
Motorists are asked to use Midway Road, McLeod Drive and U.S. 501/N.C. 130 during the closure.
Road, bridge, and other transportation improvement projects like this one are currently underway across the state as part of Governor McCrory's 25-Year Transportation Vision to enhance travel safety and to better connect North Carolinians to jobs, education, healthcare and recreation opportunities.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch for construction and detour signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
