Staff report

September 13, 2013

Folks traveling on Bladen County roads may find some delays for the coming weeks as the N.C. Department of Transportation performs maintenance.

— Airport Road will be closed near White’s Creek Missionary Baptist Church on the eastern end for a bridge replacement. It is expected that the road will be closed in that area for about 60 days, according to a release.

The detour route is White Plains Church Road to Whites Creek School Road to Allen-Priest Road.

— Also, N.C. 131 will be closed between N.C. Hwy 87 and Grimes-Singletary Road for about six weeks due to a realignment of the “Huckleberry Curve.”

The detour will be N.C. 87 West to N.C. 410.
