BELWOOD - The N.C. Department of Transportation will soon close a road in Cleveland County for nine months for a bridge replacement project.
Starting Jan. 10, Kadesh Church Road will be closed in both directions near Latham Wilson Road to allow crews to safely replace the bridge over Buffalo Creek. The bridge needs to be replaced due to its age and condition. Work is expected to be complete by October 2022.
A detour will be in place for the duration of the closure from Kadesh Church Road to Fallston Road (N.C. 18), Merton Road, Latham Wilson Road, Lee Bess Road and Flay Road.
Motorists should plan accordingly for delays and use caution while following the detour.
