Section of China Grove Road closing for work near I-85

Contractors with the N.C. Department of Transportation must close a portion of China Grove Road to make improvements where the road will intersect with the Old Beatty Ford relocation project.

The closure will begin at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 10, and will wrap-up by Sunday, June 11, at midnight.

The closed section on China Grove Road is between Daugherty Road and the current location of Old Beatty Ford Road.

“The project will enhance safety and improve access to I-85 for regional, statewide and national markets, and supports long-range planning and land use initiatives,” said Division Engineer Pat Ivey.

Traffic will be able to detour around the closure using West Old Beatty Ford Road, North Bostian Road and East Daugherty Road in each direction.

Transportation officials remind motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
