The N.C. Department of Transportation closed a 2.4 mile-long section of Turkey Foot Road near Red Oak in Nash County Tuesday morning, March 19 until Friday, March 22. The closure is necessary for crews to replace a crossline pipe under Turkey Foot Road in preparation of a road resurfacing project this summer.
Turkey Foot Road will be closed between Red Oak Boulevard/N.C. 43 and Tharrington Road with a signed detour in place. Traffic will take Red Oak Boulevard/N.C. 43 and Tharrington Road to travel around the construction site.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
