As part of Hickory’s City Walk construction, a new road closure and detour route will go into effect beginning Thursday (November 19). Crews will begin construction on the roundabout portion of the project located at the intersection of Main Avenue NE and Second Avenue NE. Main Avenue NE will be closed from Second Street NE to Second Avenue NE. The detour routes will be as follows:
Westbound traffic on Main Avenue NE will travel along Third Avenue NE, then turn left onto Third Street NE, cross over Second Avenue NE, and then turn right onto First Avenue NE. From there, travelers will cross N.C. 127 continuing on First Avenue NE, then turn left onto Second Street NE returning to Main Avenue NE.
Eastbound traffic on Main Avenue NE will be required to turn left onto Second Street NE, then turn right onto First Avenue NE. From there, drivers will travel across N.C. 127 and turn left onto Third Street NE. Then they will turn right onto Second Avenue NE continuing on to Main Avenue NE.
Detour routes will be clearly marked. This construction and the related road closure will be in place for the remainder of the project.
