ROSE HILL, N.C. – N.C. Department of Transportation crews will close a portion of a Duplin County road in order to shift traffic onto a new bridge.

Crews plan to close N.C. 11 at the bridge over Maxwell Creek, between Sanderson and Landfill roads, at 7 p.m. Friday. This closure is expected to last until 6 a.m. on Aug. 8. The closure will allow crews to prepare to shift traffic onto the new bridge from the detour bridge. 

As a detour, drivers should use N.C. 24, Interstate 40 and West Charity Road. NCDOT urges motorists to slow down and use caution near the construction site and plan accordingly for their commute.
