Road Closures To Remain In Place In Caldwell/Watauga Counties

The N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has extended the closures of U.S. 321 and N.C. 105  in Caldwell and Watauga Counties until at least Sunday evening (April 14). Crews have closed U.S. 321 near Blowing Rock from Blackberry Road to Green Hill Road to assess impacts from a rock slide.

Also, N.C. 105 will remain closed from Broadstone Road to Old Shulls Mill Road as crews safely stabilize slopes adjacent to the roadway and clear materials from the road after a blasting operation earlier in the week.

The NCDOT plans to provide updates on the cleanup efforts related to both incidents.
