GASTONIA – An N.C. Department of Transportation contractor plans to close a section of a highway in Gaston County for one month starting next month.
Beginning April 4, the U.S. 321 South U-turn lane for traffic to access U.S. 321 North at the intersection of Radio Street will be closed. The closure will allow crews to safely replace a collapsed pipe. Work is expected to be complete by May 4.
Traffic needing to travel northbound on the route will follow U.S. 321 South to N.C. 7 East, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Way North, and Bulb Avenue to turn onto U.S. 321 North.
Drivers should remain alert when approaching the work zone and expect some delays due to the detour.
