NC 53 in Onslow County to close Friday night for repairs


JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County - Road work on NC 53 in Onslow County will begin Friday night.

The specific area is west of Haws Run Road. The NC Department of Transportation will replace an old drainage pipe that runs under the road.

"This new pipe has better drainage capacity," said Jacksonville Resident Engineer Trevor Carroll in a press release. "It will make a difference when the next storm comes through our area." The closure will be in place from 8 p.m. Friday, until 5:30 a.m. on Monday. Traffic will be detoured to Foy Lockamy Road, Blue Creek Road and Pony Farm Road.
