SWANSBORO, N.C. — A Swansboro road that was scheduled to be closed through March 10 will now be closed for an additional four days.

Last week, Swansboro officials said Hammocks Beach Road would be closed to through traffic starting from 8 am on March 6th to 5 pm on March 10 as the NC Department of Transportation would be replacing a crossline pipe under the road. On Wednesday, town officials said the closure had been extended to March 14 at 5 p.m.

Alternate access to Hammocks Beach Road will be by way of Old Hammock Road. Drivers are encouraged to make appropriate travel plans for accessing Hwy. 24.
