LOUISBURG – A recently-awarded N.C. Department of Transportation contract will see four pipe crossings repaired during the second half of the year in Franklin, Granville and Warren Counties.
Between July 1 and Sept. 1, contractors from Ralph Hodge Construction Company of Wilson can begin the $1.4 million repair work on Philo White Road, Ellington Road, Ridgeway-Warrenton Road, and East River Road. All of those roads should be open to traffic by Nov. 1.
Though each crossing repair must begin within the two-month window, they each have individual completion timelines.
Work on the Philo White Road crossing over Sand Creek in Granville County must be completed within 30 days of starting. Thru traffic will be directed to Cannady Mill Road and N.C. 86 while repairs are taking place.
All work required on the Ellington Road crossing over Ellington Branch Creek in Warren County must be completed within 45 days of starting. Motorists can utilize Drewry-Virginia Line Road and Culpepper Road to detour around the worksite.
Also in Warren County, work on the Ridgeway-Warrenton Road crossing over an offshoot of Fishing Creek must be done within 30 days of the start date. The detour route will include U.S. 401, Read Road and Read Dead End Road.
Finally, repair work on the East River Road crossing over Jumping Run in Franklin County must be completed within 60 days of starting. The thru traffic detour will utilize George Leonard Road and Mort Harris Road.
