Rock Removal Operations Continuing This Week In N.C. Mountains

Contract crews for the N.C. Department of Transportation will continue rock removal operations on N.C. 105 between Broadstone Road and Old Shulls Mill Road. Blasting operations resumed late last week.

Crews from Wright Brothers Construction Company Inc. were scheduled to stop traffic intermittently tonight (June 4) and Thursday evening (June 6) for up to 15 minutes at a time to manually clear materials for slope stabilization. Beginning at 9 p.m., the closures will hold traffic for up to 30 minutes at a time until the full reopening of the road the following morning at 6 a.m.

Crews will be on-site directing motorists around the temporary closures. Drivers are encouraged to utilize DriveNC.gov​ for real-time traffic information and alternate routes.
