N.C. 205 permanent closure scheduled Tuesday

The N.C. Department of Transportation will permanently close N.C. Highway 205 at College Street Tuesday, weather permitting.

The closure is part of a project to modify the First Street/Main Street intersection. N.C. 205 has been realigned to intersect with Main Street rather than Second Street. A traffic signal has also been installed at Main Street/St. Martin Road/N.C. Highway 138.

Contract crews will install guardrail across N.C. 205 near College Street, while state forces will install signage to advise of the closure.

Drivers are advised to use caution in the area.
