BEULAVILLE – To mitigate flooding, N.C. Department of Transportation crews will close a portion of a Duplin County road to replace a pipe.
On April 18 at 9 a.m., NCDOT plans to close Cedar Fork Church Road, near Fountaintown Road. The work is weather permitting, but the road is scheduled to reopen by 5 p.m. April 22.
During the closure, crews will replace a crossline pipe. The new, larger pipe will be able to accommodate more water during future storms, which should help to relieve potential flooding in the area.
To access either side of the work zone, drivers will be detoured onto Fountaintown Road, N.C. 111, and Lyman Road. NCDOT suggests drivers plan ahead as their travel time will take longer due to the detour and use caution if near the construction.
