RURAL HALL – The N.C. Department of Transportation has closed part of a Forsyth County road damaged by flooding from recent heavy rains.
The shoulder of a section of Memorial Industrial School Road washed away along Trick-Um Creek, near N.C. 8, east of Rural Hall. The damage left the guardrail unsupported and the road dangerous for drivers, resulting in the closure.
NCDOT is evaluating repair solutions for this location. The road will remain closed until the repair can be made, with a detour in place following N.C. 8, and Shiloh Church, Baux Mountain and Red Bank roads.
Drivers should be cautious near the closure and mindful of crews working in this area, and allow extra time for the detour.
