The City of Hickory is closing the portion of Fifth Street NE from Stasovich Place (Fifth Street NE) to Tenth Avenue Drive NE, starting this week. Various sections of the road will be closed for roughly two and a half months to enhance the crosswalks along that area. The sidewalk will be widened to 10 feet to better accommodate bikes and pedestrians. Fifth Street NE will also go from three lanes to two lanes.
Detours signage will be in place. Please slow down and use caution throughout any detours in the City. Details will be updated in the City’s Newsroom at www.HickoryNC.gov and the City of Hickory, NC – Government Facebook page, as well as @CityofHickory on Twitter.
