SHALLOTTE – For the safety of drivers and first responders, a portion of N.C. 211 in Brunswick County will remain closed until a brush fire is under control.
The N.C. Department of Transportation along with emergency responders have closed the highway near U.S 17. At this time, it is uncertain how long N.C. 211 will need to remain closed to traffic.
The detour travels into Columbus County, and is as follows: U.S. 17, N.C. 130, U.S. 701 Business, U.S. 74/76 to return to N.C. 211.
NCDOT urges drivers to take the detour into account when planning travel and avoid N.C. 211 in the area.
