Both are scheduled to close to vehicular traffic on Saturday morning. Riggs Road is scheduled to reopen by mid-November, while Morristown Road is expected to open earlier by the end of October.

- Morristown Road: N.C. 58, Stella Road, Farin Ward Road and Wetherington Landing Road.
Drivers should approach the closures cautiously and take into account the detour when reaching their destinations.
