ROCKY POINT — The N.C Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will close a section of N.C. 210 west of Rocky Point near Balcombe Road so maintenance crews can replace a failing crossline pipe.

The closure will begin at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 16 and is expected to last until 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18., according to an NCDOT press release on Monday.

For vehicles traveling westbound on N.C. 210, there will be a detour going south on Cheshire Road, which then links up to N.C. 133 going northwest towards its merging with N.C. 210. Cheshire Road is a mile-and-a-half west of I-40.

Those going southeast on N.C. 210 are asked to take N.C. 133 to Cheshire Road and back onto N.C. 210.

The NCDOT urged drivers to use caution approaching the closure and plan for extra time to travel through the area.
