Roads in Denton and western Davidson Counties will be closed until Friday, August 27, as the NC Department of Transportation works to replace pipes under the roads.
NC DOT crews closed part of NC Highway 47 for a pipe replacement on Monday. The portion of the freeway that will be closed crosses West Salisbury Street between Jones Street and Railroad Streets.
A cross pipe failed under the roadway. The road is expected to reopen on Friday, August 27th at 3:30 p.m. or earlier, depending on the weather.
Motorists are advised to use NC 47, Carter Lumber Plant Road, and North Main Street as detours. Drivers should be careful on the diversion and expect delays.
In addition, NC DOT crews will close a section of Tussey Road between Helmstetler Road and Old Salisbury Road on Monday while crews replace a crossline pipe. The street is slated to reopen on Friday, August 27th at 3:30 p.m. or earlier if weather permits.
Traffic will be diverted to Helmstetler Road, Mt. Carmel Church Road and Old Salisbury. Drivers should be careful and expect some delays due to the diversion.
