Portion Of Road To Be Closed Today & Tomorrow For Pipe Replacement

N.C. Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close a section of Chipley Ford Road north of Statesville today (February 26) and tomorrow (February 27), weather permitting. The closure was scheduled for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days so crews can safely install a crossline pipe under the roadway.

Drivers will be detoured around the closure using Bess and Friendship roads, returning to Chipley Ford Road. Drivers should remain alert, use caution, and reduce speed in the work zone. ​For real-time travel information, visit or follow NCDOT on social media.
