Wayne County Road Getting Drainage Maintenance

PIKEVILLE – The N.C. Department of Transportation is upgrading the drainage on Big Daddys Road east of Pikeville.

A maintenance contractor is replacing crossline pipes at eight locations along a six-mile stretch of Big Daddys Road, requiring short-term closures to thru-traffic between U.S. 117 and N.C. 111. The work started today and is expected to be completed by Oct. 6, weather permitting.

The pipes are nearing the end of their lifespan, and the NCDOT wants to replace them before this same stretch of road is resurfaced in a future project.

Drivers should follow the signs for the detours, which will vary based on which pipe is being replaced.  Drivers will require a longer trip using the alternate routes and approach each work site cautiously.
