Dale Earnhardt Blvd. still closed for repairs
A section of N.C. 3 (Dale Earnhardt Boulevard) between Rogers Lake Road and Peach Street in Kannapolis remains closed due to a water main break that occurred July 11.
A contractor working in the area struck a water line, causing water to gather under the roadway and buckle the pavement. The city of Kannapolis has established a detour along Peach Street, Desota Avenue and Rogers Lake Road.
At this time, crews are working to replace damaged curb and gutter, and will put down 5 inches of asphalt on the road surface. Tomorrow, an additional 6 inches of asphalt will be applied. Depending on weather and progress on repairs, crews should reopen the road Tuesday afternoon.
Citizens with questions are encouraged to contact the City of Kannapolis at 704-920-4399.
