REGIONAL: Anson County road set to close next week

A section of Jack’s Branch Road in Ansonville will close near Martin Road on Monday morning so N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews can replace a culvert, thanks to a $412,000 contract recently awarded to APAC-Atlantic Inc. out of Greensboro.

Drivers will follow a signed detour from Jack’s Branch Road to U.S. 52, Polkton Road, Mount Vernon Road and Martin Road, returning to Jack’s Branch Road.

Work is scheduled to be completed in early September.
