May 26 update: This
project needs to be postponed until some preliminary water line work in this
same vicinity can be completed. NCDOT will announce the new start date
when it has been rescheduled. Below is the original release from May 22 with
the old date.
FOUR OAKS – A section of U.S. 301 on the outskirts of Four Oaks will close for about a month, so a N.C. Department of Transportation contract crew can replace a drainage pipe under the pavement.
The closure will affect both directions of U.S. 301 near Forest Hills Drive and occur between May 30, starting at 6 a.m., until late June, weather permitting. A detour will send drivers onto Keen and Boyette roads, past Four Oaks Middle School.
Drivers should be alert near the work zone and expect a longer commute when using the detour.
