Note: A detour map for the Robeson County Fair is attached.
Raleigh - Citizens attending the Robeson County Fair between Sept. 29 and Oct. 8 will need to take a detour due to a culvert replacement on N.C. 41.
Division staff did not want to wait until after the fair to replace the culvert due to safety concerns. N.C. 41 is a primary road between Fairmont and Lumberton.
Traffic coming from points east should follow the signed detour route along N.C. 72 to West Fifth Street to Starlite Drive to N.C. 41.
Traffic coming from points north and west of Lumberton from Exit 17 at I-95, turn right on West Fifth Street, then follow the signed detour to Starlite Drive.
The project, which should be completed by mid December, will upgrade the sidewalk and pedestrian rails to accommodate current design standards. A temporary pedestrian bridge will be constructed.
