More road closings for repairs in county

CHINA GROVE – Pipe installations and asphalt repairs needed for the Interstate 85 Widening and Improvements project that spans Rowan and Cabarrus counties will require N.C. Department of Transportation contractors to close a section of the southbound U.S. 29 Connector as well as the westbound N.C. 152 loop to U.S. 29 this weekend near China Grove.

The southbound connector near N.C. 152 will close from midnight Friday, April 6, until 6 a.m. on Saturday, April 7, weather permitting.

Southbound traffic and westbound traffic may use Webb Road in opposite directions to detour around the closures.

NCDOT will close Potneck Road near the address 4125 (about 200-800 feet from the NC 801 intersection) between April 9 and 13 in order to replace three crosslines under the roadway prior to widening and overlaying the roadway later this year.

 The detour https://goo.gl/RzmngC consists of NC 801, Woodleaf Road, and Wetmore Road.
