Millersville Road in Alexander County to Re-Open Tomorrow

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has provided an update on the roads that were closed due to flooding on November 12 in Alexander County. According to Jason Willis, Staff Maintenance Engineer for Division 12, the total damage is estimated at $5.7 million with a total of 28 sites that required repairs.

Willis said that work is almost complete on the Millersville Road project, near N.C. Highway 16 South and Nester Road. Millersville Road is scheduled to reopen this Friday afternoon, December 18.

Work continues on Liledoun Road, which has been closed since June 2019. Willis said the project is on track to have the road opened on stone by January 9, 2021. Liledoun Road will be paved around the end of March or sooner, as weather and temperatures allow.
