SALISBURY – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close a Rowan County road next week for a culvert replacement.
From Oct. 31 - Nov. 2, Cooper Road will be closed in both directions near Patterson Road to allow crews to replace a failed drainpipe that is meant to transport runoff water under the roadway.
Traffic will be detoured to Weaver and Patterson roads to return to Cooper Road.
The alternate dates for this job are Nov. 14-16.
Motorists are advised to slow down and remain alert while using the detour.
