Drainage pipe replacement to close NC 58 South on Wednesday


KINSTON, Lenoir County - The N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of N.C. 58 in Kinston on Wednesday to replace a drainage pipe.

The section of road southeast of Copeland Farm Road will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The NCDOT said in a press release the closure will allow crews to replace a drainage pipe that runs under the road. The work is important to avoid damage to the road and adjacent shoulders from water leaking below the surface. A signed detour will guide motorists to U.S. 70, Wyse Fork Road and N.C. 41. Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the work area and to expect delays. Drivers are also urged to watch for detour signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
