The North Carolina Department of Transportation will close Morganton Road on NC 5 to Monticello Road next week, the village of Pinehurst said on social media on Tuesday.
The road closure begins on Wednesday, January 13th at 8 a.m. and ends on Friday, January 15 at 5 p.m.
The crews will replace a failed drain pipe.
In addition, during this time, NCDOT will be doing shoulder work along Morganton Road, primarily from Doral Drive to the traffic lights on Highway 15-501.
“Drivers should allow extra time for the detour and watch out for the crews working to repair and reopen this heavily used route,” the village said.
Companies in this area will have access during the closure.
Please direct your questions to NCDOT at 910-773-8070.
