East Boiling Spring Road reopens after Florence
The Boiling Spring Lakes road was one of less than a dozen still closed by the September storm,
BOILING SPRING LAKES – A Brunswick County road damaged by Hurricane Florence is back open to traffic.
A section of East Boiling Spring Road had been closed since the hurricane in September, but it reopened to traffic Monday afternoon. The closure allowed the N.C. Department of Transportation to safely replace the nearly 22-foot deep pipe crossing and repair the damaged section of road caused by Hurricane Florence.
The Boiling Spring Lakes road was one of less than a dozen still closed by the September storm. With its reopening, eight state-maintained roads remain closed throughout the state.
East Plantation Road, also in Boiling Spring Lakes, remains closed, according to Jamie Kritzer, a spokesman for N.C. DOT. He said the department expects it to reopen Friday, Jan. 25, but that could change.
Alton Lennon Drive, a town-maintained road washed out by the hurricane, remains closed.
