Lane closures begin Wednesday
BOILING SPRING LAKES — Replacements for a Brunswick County culvert damaged by Hurricane Florence start this month.
Beginning Wednesday, the N.C. Department of Transportation will have intermittent lane closures on River Road (N.C. 133) in both directions as crews prepare to replace the failed culvert.
A section of River Road will be closed to traffic while crews put in the new culvert starting Oct. 21 at 8 a.m. Work is expected to last through Monday, Nov. 11. Southbound traffic will be detoured onto U.S. 17 South and N.C. 87 South to get back to N.C. 133. Northbound traffic will use N.C. 87 North and U.S. 17 North to get back to N.C. 133.
During this time, drivers should expect their commute to take longer than normal. Drivers are also urged to slow down when around the work zone.
Real-time travel information will be available at DriveNC.gov or the NCDOT social media accounts.
