Two Stanly County roads to close this week

The N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will close two roads this week as part of the project to widen N.C. 24-27 to four lanes from Bird Road in Albemarle to the Pee Dee River.

Starting Thursday, both Strand Drive and Valley Road will close at N.C. 24-27 through the end of the year allowing contract crews to safely make intersection improvements.

During construction, drivers can follow the Valley Road detour and Strand Drive detour to minimize delays.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
