Portion of Palestine Road closed due to water damage

Friday, July 5, 2012 — A portion of Palestine Road is closed due to water damage, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

NCDOT closed the portion of Palestine Road from the Northeast Connector to Kemp Road Friday afternoon due to water damage and road repair.

The closure comes after parts of Stanly County received more than eight inches of rain since the end of June. Several other roads were reported as having flooded Friday afternoon, including N.C. 73 near City Lake Park, and a portion of Lowder Road.

"The public should not try to drive around any road that is barricaded," said Jennifer Thompson, NCDOT communication officer.

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
