Part of Barger Road closing for repair

The N.C. Department of Transportation will close part of Barger Road near Rockwell this week to replace a damaged pipe.
Weather permitting, maintenance crews will close Barger Road just south of Trexler Road at 8 a.m. Wednesday to begin the replacement process. The closure will remain in effect until 5 p.m. Friday, May 27, when the project is expected to be complete.
While the closure is in effect, motorists should take the following detour routes:
• Traveling south on Barger Road: Turn left on Trexler Road, turn right on Stokes Ferry Road, turn right on St. Peter’s Church Road, turn right on Gold Knob Road and follow it back to Barger Road.
• Traveling north on Barger Road: Take Gold Knob Road to St. Peter’s Church Road, turn left on St. Peter’s Church Road, turn left on Stokes Ferry Road, turn left on Trexler Road and follow it back to Barger Road.
NCDOT encourages motorists to stay alert, slow down and pay attention to signs in the work zone. They should expect some traffic congestion in the area while the project is under way.
